The Seeker’s Guide to Soul Contact, Part 13

Day 126

The Beast and Religion

In the past the beast has found extremely fertile ground in working through religious authority. Often religious leaders carried more weight with the people than their political rulers. Many have been willing to obey them even at the cost of their lives and fortune.

We live in a time of change for we are at the cusp of the ages. Religious authority is losing its hold on the people and political authority is gaining strength. Even so, religious authority is still very strong, especially for those who are dedicated to their faith.

Many who are not particularly religious have difficulty in understanding the hold that a belief system can have on its members. Once the belief is accepted that an outer authority speaks for God then going against such an authority is equated with being against God and could lead to hell or the destruction of the soul.

Such outer authorities then have tremendous power to demand money, service and allegiance from followers.

One who has been in an organization where he was more captivated by the outer authority and breaks free is able to perceive and see the beast with great clarity. If the seeker is able to escape the mark in the right hand (control of actions) and the forehead (control of thought) then he will have a sense of freedom not experienced by many.

As we said earlier the agents of the beast are those who take the place of God in the minds of the people. Instead of reflecting within and accessing God through the inner Spirit, people tend to look to an outer authority who can tell them what the thoughts and will of God is. Of course what really happens is the outer authority tells them what are his own thoughts and will.

An interesting description of the workings of the beast is given by Paul. This scripture is used by fundamentalists to teach about the coming of an antichrist at the end of times. Instead it describes the here and now:

“That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.” II Thess 2:2-4

Here is an alternative interpretation revealing the true principle:

Before the seeker can access the soul, the Christ within, he must understand the true nature of the beast which is a “man of sin” who represents the will of God to you. He sits in the temple of God (the physical body) and shows himself to be the voice of God as if he is your God.

The seeker must have this revelation of this “man of sin” and put him in his place before he can experience the coming of Christ through his own soul.

This agent of the beast is revealed in some religions by a powerful leader at the top whose instructions are not to be questioned. Other less authoritarian churches are governed by a council or body of representatives.

One thing they all have in common is the possession of scriptures that are not to be questioned. There are thousands of religions that have sprung from the Bible alone. Few people get their interpretation of the scriptures from just reading them, but they joined a church and were told by authorities what they mean. Thus even the most noble words can be used as agents of the beast.

Assignment: Contemplate how the Bible and other holy books can represent the beast to the many.

Affirmation: “I reject the illusion without and experience the coming of Christ within.”

 

Day 127

Hijacking the Good

When people think of the beast they usually associate it with the antichrist which will bring to mind people like Hitler, Nero or some powerful dictator. Not many have ever thought to associate the scriptures themselves or even Jesus with the beast. Now Jesus, for instance, was certainly not a direct agent of the beast but his name has been hijacked and his teachings distorted so that he has become a tool very useful for the beast and his agents.

A seeker may wonder how is it that something as benevolent as the scriptures or a holy man or even Christ himself can become an agent of the beast?

First of all, let’s look at the scriptures, specifically the Bible. When you talk to a religious fundamentalist they will act like all you have to do is just read the Bible, believe what it says and understanding it is that simple. If you listen of them, you’d think that two people reading the Bible are going to get the same interpretation because the Bible just says what the Bible says.

Well it’s not that simple. There are literally thousands of religions that’s based on the Bible and no two of them have exactly the same interpretation of all the words therein. Very few people in any religion get their interpretation of basic doctrine from reading the Bible itself. The doctrine that is in their heads was put there by some leader or teacher within their religion. Within a religion you don’t have thousands of people reading the Bible with all of them getting different interpretations. They’ll all get the same interpretation because someone is telling them what to believe.

That someone who is telling them what to believe is an agent of the beast because these people are not thinking for themselves or contacting the inner spirit but are leaning on an outer voice that is a substitute for God. And in many cases the way this person becomes a substitute for God is by proclaiming to believers that the scriptures are the literal word of God and that word of God means what he says it means. When a person uses authority to tell people what is in the mind of God by interpretation like this he becomes a substitute for God or an agent of the beast.

Not only is a preacher a substitute for God, but the scriptures themselves are. Because the scriptures can be interpreted many different ways, the door opens for them to be an agent of the beast because they are an outer source. An outer source is only reliable when it’s verified by your inner source. If one therefore reads the scriptures without verification from within his interpretation will most likely be wrong in many places. Thus, the Scriptures can be an authority that leads someone into error.

The same problem occurs with Jesus and his words. Almost everyone has praise for the words of Jesus, for even the hardened atheist thinks the basic teachings of loving your neighbor is a good thing. Yet even his teachings and words have been misconstrued and used to persecute and make war. This is because people were looking for God outside of themselves instead of one that speaks to the spirit within. When the seeker makes soul contact then he can read the scriptures and the words of Jesus, be edified and set upon the right path. If he’s leaning up on the beast, which is an outer unearned authority, then he will be led into the error every time, even if he memorizes the Bible word for word.

The fact that the beast uses benevolent things like the scriptures, Jesus, holy men famous authors, philosophers and other edifying things this gives him tremendous power to surround his agents with an aura of righteousness and benevolence. This is why it is written that the beast will be worshiped by the whole world, because he takes the things that are worshiped and adored and uses them as tools of control.

The assignment today it is to examine the sacred cows in your own life and ask yourself, “are these things precious to me because of what an outer authority has placed in my mind or something I have discovered on my own and verified from within?”

Affirmation: “Nothing is sacred until it is verified by my innermost spirit.”

 

Part 128

The Principle of Freedom

Politics, government and state authority presents a very fertile ground for the beast to dominate. And the domination is very subtle. It says in the Scriptures that even the elect will be deceived. Well, as far as politics go many very good people cannot see the deception involved in the promotion of various political agendas. If you look on both sides of almost every issue you will see that there are good people, and often we find that the good people on one side just cannot stand the good people on the other side merely because they support something contrary to their own notions.

What the seeker needs to look at as far as politics goes is where the will of the beast is being carried out and where it is being resisted. In other words, what is the dividing line?

The dividing line is very simple but for an odd reason it is difficult for many people to see. The dividing line is the principle of freedom and the principle of freedom is basically this. The principle of freedom is being followed when maximum freedom for the whole is advocated. We say maximum freedom because total freedom is impossible.

For instance, no one wants to give the burglar total freedom to invade his house and take whatever he wants. By restricting the burglar and other lawbreakers from certain actions that are harmful we take away some of their freedom but give much more freedom to the average individual. Because we do not allow the burglar to enter your house this gives you more freedom and thus follows the principle of freedom because the overall freedom, or the freedom of the whole, is increased.

It is interesting that every political decision takes away freedom from some and gives freedom to others. The people who get more freedom and benefits think that is just great even though they may be a minority. Because every political decision brings somebody more freedom every politician and every ruler always thinks they are fighting for freedom.

The South believed that they were fighting for freedom even though they were fighting to maintain slavery. They felt that slavery was essential to their freedom because slavery allowed the slave owners to live a better life and have more individual freedom for themselves. It didn’t seem to occurred to them that an entire race of people had to suffer a loss of freedom so that they could have a little benefit.

When Abraham Lincoln heard people from the South comment on how they were fighting for freedom he made the comment that they certainly had a different idea what freedom was than he did.

Hitler thought he was fighting for freedom. He often invoked freedom as a calling card. And almost every other dictator has done the same thing and the strange thing is that their followers believed they were fighting for freedom. Because so many people are deceived about what brings maximum freedom and what does not it makes it easy for the beast to control people in the name of freedom while leading them down the path of slavery, if not for themselves, for others.

Concerning these different political issues there are two sides and one side will always bring more freedom for the whole than the other side. When you look at the two political camps you’ll find that both sides will proclaim that they are fighting for freedom in almost every case. And in a way they are, but one side is fighting for a larger portion of freedom than the other side. One side will be fighting for the freedom of the many and the other side will be fighting for the freedom of the few.

The beast always supports the side that fights for the freedom for the few because this enables him to bring restrictions and a loss of freedom directed at the majority. He thus follows a step-by-step process to take away freedom from the people.

The assignment today is to pick three political issues and ask yourself which side supports the principle of freedom? Or you can ask it this way, which position takes away the least amount of freedom because almost every bill Congress passes takes away some freedom from somebody.

Affirmation: “I support the greatest possible freedom for the many rather than just the few.”

 

Day 129

Extremism and the Beast

Remember that the goal of the beast, above all else, is control and it is willing to use any tool at his disposal to maintain it. One thing you can say about the beast is that he is not partial to any policy or belief system as long as his control is increased and the freedom of the whole is diminished.

He is willing to use either the believer or non believer in religion and spirituality. He is willing to use conservatives or liberals; the educated and the ignorant – no one is beyond being used as a tool except those who lean on the real authority that is within.

The question arises as to how it is that the beast would use people on both sides of various fences. The answer is this: Between the two extremes there is always a point of truth. This truth is often difficult to see as there seems to be many judgment calls involved. People swing back and forth like pendulums and when they swing a distance away from the point of truth the door is open for the beast to step in and increase his power of dominion.

Let us take religion, for example. If the religion is too strict then punishments, threats of hell and other measures will be used to keep people in line which gives the beast power to rule through his pawns with unearned authority.

If a people go the other extreme and incorporate atheism as a substitute for religion the same problem may occur and you could have someone like a Stalin being an agent of the beast controlling the people “for their own good.”

If we look at the political issues of the day we can see that extreme positions can open the door for the beast of unearned authority to enter and exert control.

For instance, a prominent issue as I write this is immigration. What are the two extremes?

One extreme is to be against all immigration and the other extreme is to allow for all immigrants to come, even if done illegally. The first extreme leads to overly strict controls and the second leads to a destabilized society – two useful tools in the hands of the beast.

Another issue is law and order. If there are too many laws with overly strict enforcement then powerful intrusive authority is needed. The other extreme is for people to pick and choose which laws they will follow which again leads to chaos and anarchy.

Taxes are always a popular issue. On one extreme some will want to reduce taxes to the extent that the government cannot pay its bills which could lead to such a high deficit that the nation could go bankrupt. On the other extreme, taxes will be so high that people become disgruntled and do everything possible to avoid paying them. This brings in excessive power from the beast.

What the seeker needs to do to find the point of truth is to see where the parties are on the various issues. Are they leaning to one extreme or the other? If the nation is leaning toward an extreme then one must look closely to see where the power of the beast is seeking to increase control. The true seekers of soul contact must get a sense of where the point of truth lies and do all in their power to guide the people toward that which lies somewhere between the two extremes.

Assignment: Examine yourself and ask if you are leaning to an extreme with any of the issues of the day. Does your Higher Self verify that you are not being controlled by the beast? Do you always support the Principle of Freedom?

Affirmation: “I sway not back and forth with group will, but make my stand at the center of spiritual power.”

 

Day 130

The Two Types of Truth

The soul sees from a higher level than we do and is much more aware of what is true and what is false. When our attention focuses on that which is true the consciousness moves closer to the soul which sends out a harmonious vibration when truth is spoken. When the seeker moves away from truth he also moves away from the Higher Self and the high spiritual vibration is replaced with vibrations of the emotional/desire nature. If the seeker grows to love falsehood and distortion more than truth the result will be spiritual amnesia and he will forget about the feelings of the soul and begin to mistake the lower nature for the Higher Self.

Many truths are easy to see in theory, but difficult when it comes down to real time application. This is why we have spent some time in recent lessons covering some controversial issues. The seeker seeking reliable soul contact must listen to the inner voice over the outer to discern the truth of the issues of the day. He will not arrive at the truth by merely going along with those who tell us what to think.

Many are puzzled that good people on both sides of the issues arrive at such different political and spiritual conclusions.

One of the main reasons for this is that there are two different kinds of truth.

First, there are true facts that can be proven mathematically or by observation or demonstration of some kind.

For instance, if someone says it is a sunny day all one has to do is go outside and verify that the person is telling the truth.

If someone is selling you ten pounds of potatoes and you doubt him then you can weigh them yourself and determine the truth of the matter.

Many facts like these can be verified so on these type of truths there is no argument about their validity.

We’ll call this first type of truth, true facts. All people, even the beast and his agents, generally accept these.

The second type of truth involves direction and judgment and cannot be proven in black and white terms. Let us take the sport of bowling for example. If you knock down all ten pins with one throw you have a strike. That is the first type of truth and no one will dispute this.

On the other hand, how to best hold and throw the ball to attain that strike is another matter. There is no universal agreement on this. Each bowler must use his best judgment as he seeks to perfect his game.

It is a fact that many people are in need of assistance and almost all agree that we should help in some way. That is the first type of truth. However, there is a huge disagreement on how much we should help individually and as a society. This requires a judgment call.

There is a point between the two extremes where the most efficient course of action lies, but few can see it accurately because so many facts of the first order are at play.

This is where the soul comes into play. It sees on a higher level than the lower self and can guide the seeker toward a judgment that will take him toward the highest point of truth.

Most everyone supports some type of immigration, but how much and under what conditions are judgments that enter in.

Most everyone supports some type of taxation to fund the government, but disagree on the amount and conditions, which require a judgment.

Part of the problem with this second type of truth is that it is difficult to see because it is often the case that many of the facts are missing. For instance, the weatherman has some facts that will help him predict tomorrows weather, but not all. He puts together the facts he has and makes a judgment call. He is rarely exactly correct but he gives us a general idea of what to expect.

The beast uses this second type of truth to his full advantage and supplements it with the first type of truth.

Assignment: Contemplate on how the beast uses this second type of truth to control the masses.

Affirmation: “I gather the facts and seek to judge through the eyes of the soul.”

 

Day 131

The Tactics of the Beast

The greatest desire of the beast is to gain authority and control over the souls of men. He attempts this in such a way that he expects appreciation, thankfulness and even worship. Unfortunately, most of humanity give him these things of their own free will, not realizing that they are selling themselves into slavery as predicted by Isaiah:

“For thus saith the LORD, Ye have sold yourselves for nought; and ye shall be redeemed without money. For thus saith the Lord GOD, My people went down aforetime into Egypt to sojourn there; and the Assyrian oppressed them without cause. Now therefore, what have I here, saith the LORD, that my people is taken away for nought? they that rule over them make them to howl, saith the LORD; and my name continually every day is blasphemed.” Isaiah 52:3-4

Today many have given away freedoms to the beast and his agents make us howl and complain, but still they have the public support.

The goal of the beast is to create a one-world government where all are under his authority and no one will have power to challenge or question his agents. Big Brother from the book 1984 is not far from that which is desired.

What is not realized is that society is evolving toward a one world government and nothing can turn this around. Also unrealized is that we have a choice as to what that government will be. Will it be a tyranny tightly controlled by the beast or a federation of independent, yet cooperating free nations? The choice is ours, but we will only make the right choice if the people start to see how the beast operates and not buy into it.

The beast uses very subtle tactics to obtain support for increasing his control and authority. His prime tactic is to use the second type of truth that requires a judgment to discern. He doesn’t want you to use your own judgment, but to rely on the judgment of his agents.

There are four prime approaches he will use to control the masses.

(1) Selective facts. He will back up his judgments with facts that are convenient and discard those that are not. Many facts are always missing from his sales pitch.

(2) Distortion. He will distort the truth and project more freedom, prosperity, harmony, health, happiness etc. when the opposite will be the result. He will take the argument of the other side and twist it so it looks sinister and demonize anyone who opposes him.

(3) Outright lies. When he can get away with it he will create lies, which, if accepted, will destroy those who oppose him.

(4) Blame. He will blame all the problems caused by his agents on those who oppose him and are trying to free themselves from the mark of the beast.

The presentations of the beast are so clever and appealing to lower emotion that much of the world look upon his agents as their saviors and benefactors while voluntarily going into slavery. Even after receiving a clear instruction as to the nature of the beast many will still not recognize his tactics and instead embrace him. Indeed, they will fulfill these additional words of Isaiah.

“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” Isaiah 5:20

Assignment: Only those with soul contact can discern all the areas of life where the beast seeks control. Call forth your soul and ask it if you are free from the mark of the beast. Do you place any authority above that of your own soul? If so, how can you free yourself.

Affirmation: “I will know the truth which shall make me free.”

 

Day 132

The Name of God

Perhaps the best known writing from the Book of Revelation is chapter 13 which deals with the beast. It does indeed contain some important information, but often overlooked is the first verse in the next chapter which gives an essential key to overcoming the beast.

“And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father’s name written in their foreheads.” Rev 14:1

The 144,000 is a symbolic number signifying the disciple who has balanced his energies and placed them under the guidance of the Higher Christ Self. They stood on mount Sion, signifying a consciousness that rises above that of the beast and his minions that came from the sea of people.

Most important of all we are told that the 144,000 have “his Father’s name written in their foreheads.”

It is interesting that those who follow the beast and have his mark as well as his name. (Rev 13:17) On the other hand, those who have escaped the beast have God’s name in their foreheads.

The name of the beast is the name of any man who takes the place of God who speaks within. He tells followers what to think, believe and do as if his voice is the same as the voice of God.

The name of God in the forehead of the redeemed is Christ which represents the soul or the Higher Self. Your Higher Self links you to God and all other souls who have risen above the power and authority of the beast.

The ajna center, often called the third eye, is in the center of the forehead and is seen by many as the place where lies the inner throne upon which sits the presence of God. This center which lies just above and between the eyebrows is a meeting place for heaven and earth. Your consciousness can meet the consciousness of your Higher Self and obtain a vision which will allow you to see the workings of the beast. Such a seer can see through the fog of deception and see the point of truth where judgment is involved.

Assignment: Sit back in your chair and close your eyes. Focus your attention on the area of your third eye and say this three times, with a pause between each statement: “I summon my Higher Self, which is linked to Christ which is linked to God.”

As you say this visualize a point of light in your forehead. As you finish saying the invocation for the third time see the point of light growing in size. As you see it grow also feel its warmth. See it grow in strength and size until your whole body is engulfed with the invigorating light. Spend the next few minutes basking in this light and being one with your Christ self.

Affirmation: “I reject the names of men without and embrace the name of God within.”

 

Day 133

Indirect Contact

It is possible to reach your soul indirectly through the dream state. To understand this the seeker must understand what happens during dreaming. Unless you are a lucid dreamer you will notice that while dreaming that you are not aware of your every day life but are caught up in a fantasy world as if it is real.

Why is it that you are unaware of your whole self?

The answer is that the mind part of yourself is gone and only the desire/emotional part of yourself remains in the body during sleep.

This is why your dreams are so disjointed, illogical and beyond your control.

During sleep your mind consciousness returns to your soul and dwells in the higher realms. Only your feeling nature stays behind. Because it is unable to think logically it creates a world during sleep that is difficult to make sense of upon awakening.

Your emotional nature does not have contact with your Higher Self during sleep. It doesn’t even have contact with your mind consciousness, which is a step below soul consciousness.

Fortunately, though the soul can send you a message through the dream state. When this happens upon awakening you will have a sense that your dream was not an ordinary dream, but contains some type of message that requires your attention. In other words, a dream carrying a message from the soul seems like more than a dream.

Your soul sends messages to you in your dreams for two reasons.

(1) It has attempted to get your attention during waking consciousness but you didn’t pay attention. Sending a message to you in the dream state is sometimes a last resort.

(2) The seeker invokes the Higher Self and requests that information be sent through the dream state.

If the soul deems it is something you should know it can project images and feelings into your dreams in the hope that the message will be received. Using the dream state to deliver a message from the soul is somewhat comparable to a general delivering an oral message by a foot soldier to a sergeant in the field. He hopes the message gets correctly communicated, but there is always a possibility of misunderstanding.

Even though the communication through the dream state is not perfect it is worth a try. You never know what the soul may have for you that was missed by your waking consciousness.

Assignment: As you are drifting off to sleep whisper this to yourself: “My soul, I call upon you to speak to me in my sleep. What would you have me know?”

If you have given your soul a name, as discussed in a previous lesson, you can use that in addressing it.

Keep repeating this phrase until you drift off to sleep. Repeat this for at least three days and something should come through.

Affirmation: “I sleep in the peace of the Spirit.”

 

Day 134

Soul Extensions

You can go additional steps in inviting your soul into your dream state. You can invite it to take a form and speak to you face to face in your dreams. The most popular form for the soul to take in the Western world is that of Jesus, but Muslims would be more comfortable seeing Mohammed and Buddhists , Buddha etc. Your soul does not have to take the form of a religious person though. It can take the image of a possible soul mate, a beloved friend, a teacher, a parent or any person you highly respect. Then too, you can request that the soul appear to you in your dream having the name and identity that you have given to it in a previous lesson.,

The one thing all these possible images have in common is they will be people that you love. Love is always the common thread.

Let us say that you pick Jesus as the vehicle for the appearance for your soul. To make this happen you need to invoke either Jesus or your soul and ask to make the event occur. You can even pray to God to make it happen. Remember, the soul, which is the Christ consciousness, is the mediator between God and man. Any prayer that you make always goes to your soul or Higher Self first.

If you want Jesus to appear to you in your dreams and communicate with you there are several approaches you can take.

(1) Prayer. The prayer could go along these lines: “Oh God, I humbly ask that you send Jesus to counsel me in my dreams.”

(2) Direct invocation to your soul. Visualize your Higher Self as directed in previous lessons, focus your attention on communicating with it and say, “I ask of you, my soul who shares consciousness with Christ, to send Jesus to me to visit with me in the dream state.

(3) A direct invocation to Jesus. Many would feel more confortable just directly calling upon Jesus rather than their own souls. Either way, your petition will go to your Higher Self first. This is how God can hear millions of prayers all at one time. Millions of souls linked to God respond as intermediaries. If you decide to go directly to Jesus you could say something like this: “Oh, Jesus, Holy Son of God, I ask that you appear to me in my dreams and converse with me.”:

Now suppose you follow through and encounter Jesus in your dreams. Would he be the real thing? He would be most likely not be the entity who walked the streets of Jerusalem, but your soul can tune into any consciousness that has ever lived and duplicate it and cause it to appear to you. When this happens, with Jesus, for instance, the personality will be a true duplicate or extension of the Master.

Your soul can even send you an extension of someone who is awake while you are sleeping and the personality will be true to form.

On the other hand, if the personalities in your dreams are created by your emotional self they may be quite distorted. A true representation accompanied by feelings of love is a sign that your soul is sending you a message.

Assignment: Continue with yesterday’s assignment and add to it one of the three communication methods mentioned today.

Affirmation: “I call upon my soul which is linked to all other souls.”

 

Day 135

Living Daydreams

Daydreams are similar to regular dreams in that most anything can manifest in them. The main difference though is that, unlike nighttime dreams, the mind element and consciousness is still in the body. This gives the daydreamer much more control. He can change the daydream at will or shut it down at any time.

Little children are masters at daydreaming and become involved in them in a way that escapes the consciousness of many adults.

I clearly remember when I was a kid. I spent quite a bit of time alone so I often had to use my imagination to entertain myself. I would pretend that I was a cowboy, like Gene Autry, and save a damsel in distress from the bad guys. I daydreamed about being on a deserted island like Tom Hanks in Cast Away and many other things. One day as I was reflecting on the enjoyment I had through my daydreams it dawned on me that adults seem to have lost most of this ability. Yes, they may imagine something for a very short period, but they do not immerse themselves in them as a kid does.

I was looking forward to growing up except for this one thing. I did not want to loose the benefits of daydreaming and just letting my imagination go. I promised myself at that moment that when I grew up I would not forget what daydreaming is like for a kid.

I have tried to keep that promise to myself and still love to play with little children using the imagination. It amazes me how quickly they can pick up on things that I introduce to them from my imagination.

We adults need to recapture some of this ability we have lost and use it to our advantage. Imagination always precedes reality so if we imagine well then life will follow a similar pattern.

When the imagination is used more refined matter from the mental and astral planes are drawn to you and create forms in these spheres. This is why it is easy to see something that you have imagined a number of times. Your imagination builds the form and when it is fully created out of emotional and mental matter it becomes easy to call the images forth at will.

Let us s ay that you spend a lot of time imagining Jesus. After a period of time you will have created a real form of him and it will be animated with basic loving intelligence. Now when your Higher Self looks down upon your activities it will see the Jesus that you created with your imagination. It will then realize that it can use this image for good by endowing it with a portion of its consciousness to give you some guidance.

Most people who claimed to have seen Jesus have not seen the real thing, but a thoughtform created by their own power of imagination. If it is animated by one’s own consciousness then Jesus will relate standard platitudes that will contain nothing new. On the other hand, if the soul decides to animate it then the seeker could receive words of wisdom that go beyond his own native intelligence.

This explains why many little children see imaginary friends. Some of these are actual images seen by them and activated by their own souls to give them some early guidance.

Your assignment today is to create a Jesus from your own imagination and watch it develop in intelligence with the hope that your soul will animate it and give you a revelation.

Start out by seeing yourself as a peasant sitting in the crowd that watched Jesus give the sermon on the mount. You might want to first read Matthew chapters 5-7 so you have the basic sermon in your consciousness.

See yourself as being in the crowd and clearly seeing Jesus speaking those great words. When he speaks something like, “Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God” take a look at the expression on his face as he speaks as well as the expressions on the faces of those who heard the words.

Today imagine listening to the whole sermon from beginning to end and watching how Jesus delivered it. Notice how he moves his hands, how he stands, his facial expressions and more. Does he stand in one spot for the whole address or does he move around. Soak in the whole atmosphere and experience. Tomorrow there will be more.

Affirmation: “I imagine and I create, for I am in the image of God.”

 

Day 136

Walking with the Master

So, did you follow through and imagine yourself in the audience watching Jesus give the Sermon on the Mount?

At this point do not worry about accuracy but just let your imagination go, especially in your depiction of Jesus. Energy follows thought and when enough energy is given to your Jesus image your soul will get involved and animate your Jesus beyond your expectations.

Let your imagination go now and see Jesus ending his presentation. The people are impressed and several want to be healed. A leper comes forward pleading for a healing and Jesus complies. He is healed and several others come forward. As Jesus attempts to heal what he can Peter becomes alarmed as the crowd is pressing forward and people could get injured, including Jesus. Peter and the apostles escort Jesus away from the crowd, but you manage to follow them.

When they are away from the crowd you approach Peter and ask him if he would let you associate with the inner circle for a while. He asks you why they should consider this.

You respond by saying that you can write and you would like to record some of the important events that are transpiring in the life of Jesus.

Peter is impressed with the idea and after conferring with the other apostles he agrees to take you in. Meanwhile you look ahead and s ee Jesus walking alone seemingly deep in thought.

You ask Peter where they are going next and he says they are going to his house in Capernaum. He invites you to follow him as he and the other move toward Jesus. Peter taps Jesus on the shoulder and says, “We have a writer who has joined us. He thinks that what we are doing will be important to record.”

Jesus turns and looks at you and grabs your right hand with two of his and says, “Peter is more correct than he realizes. What is your name?”

You tell him your name.

Jesus drops your hand and says, “Come, walk with me as we journey to Peter’s house. Since you want to write about me you must have some questions. Tell me what they are.”

Assignment: Come up with a minimum of three questions that you will ask Jesus in your imaginary walk. When you ask a question take in his expressions, mannerisms and the way he speaks and seems to think. Be sure that you see and hear him answering your questions. The answers may be beyond something you just could have made up.

Affirmation: “I ask because the answer awaits me.”

 

Day 137

Questions to you

Jesus patiently listens to your questions and thoughtfully answers them. Then he pauses a moment, looks at you and says, “Now I have a couple questions for you.”

Assignment: This is short and sweet, but important. Again, using your imagination see Jesus asking you three or more questions as you walk with him. See yourself giving answers as if you were there with him.

Affirmation: “I receive and I give back.”

 

Day 138

Conversations with Jesus

Did you have a good two-way conversation with Jesus? If you let your imagination go there is no reason to not fulfill these assignments – and, don’t worry if the Jesus of your imagination is not as all knowing or pious as many have been lead to believe. Just run with what your imagination gives to you. Then, after a certain amount of time, Jesus will take on a life of his own and give responses beyond that which you thought you could imagine.

Continue to see yourself walking with Jesus. You have asked him questions and in return he asked you some. You two are walking silently alone just ahead of the apostles. They seem to sense that Jesus wants to spend some time with you.

You walk a while next to Jesus and he is very quiet, but you can tell that he is deep in thought. You become curious and ask him, What are you thinking about?”

He responds, “I’m thinking about how little my disciples understand my mission and the events that are coming. If you stay around you will witness some great things that you can write about.”

“Tell me about your mission,” you ask.

I have been told by the Father within me that I am to play the role of the Messiah, but it will not be the warrior messiah that most of the Jews expect. Just imagine if God told you that you were to be the Messiah. How would you react?”

You respond, “I’d probably be like Jonah and run away from the job. I’d be scared to death at the responsibility.”

Jesus let out a soft laugh and replied, “Your understanding already exceeds the disciples. Yes, since I have become aware of my mission I have developed some sympathy for Jonah running away from his mission. If the truth be told, I would be happy with a wife and kids and leading a normal life, but I have been called to a mission that bears a high weight of responsibility. I am very concerned about being up for the job and having the strength to handle everything that is coming my way.”

“I think you are the man for the job,” you say. “And besides, God is with you so this will insure you have the strength when needed.”

“That’s what I keep telling myself,” said Jesus. “Thank you for your faith. There’s Peter’s house just ahead.”

You marvel at how different the living conditions were in this age. Peter was upper middle class in his day and had an above average home. The roof was nothing fancy as it was made of dirt and straw and the rooms inside were fairly small. The only area large enough for the disciples to gather was the courtyard, an open air area in the center of the house.

Later that evening you are sitting in a circle gathered around a fire. You get the feeling that these fireside chats with Jesus were quite common for the disciples. You look around at the group and see that all the Twelve Disciples are there, some with their wives. There are also several female disciples not married to any apostle. You are sitting next to John and he tells you that he really enjoys these fireside chats. Jesus will usually start them off by teaching something and a question and answer period follows. John then says that he has a couple questions about the sermon earlier today.

Next Jesus begins to teach the group. Again use your imagination and see yourself there hearing his words. Later see yourself there during the question and answer period. Listen in to some of the questions asked and the answers received. If you have a question see yourself asking it.

Assignment: Continue participating in this fireside chat as long as is comfortable. Take note of all your surroundings, the people and the conversation.

Affirmation: “Today, I will walk and talk with the Master.”

 

Day 139

Stand and Be Healed

The discussion ends and Peter and his wife retire. A few of the disciples leave for their homes but most stay in the courtyard and start falling asleep on some straw. Jesus also seems to be sleepy and turns to you and says: “I’ve been invited to dinner at the home of a Pharisee tomorrow. Would you like to come with me?”

“Sure,” you say.

Jesus smiled and said, “If you are going to write about me then you might as well get a view of me in different settings.”

The next day Jesus called his disciples together and said, “We have work to do. Let us stroll through Capernaum and see what happens.”

You follow as Jesus leads the disciples through the town

The first person who caught the attention of Jesus was a beggar with a useless leg. It was a great struggle for him to get around on crutches.

The beggar says, “Are you Jesus – the one who is said to have healing powers?”

“That is probably me,” he replied.

“I know it’s asking a lot, but is it possible to restore my leg.”

“All things are possible with God,” Jesus replied.

“What do I need to do?” he asked.

“Stand up,” said Jesus.

“That’s kind of hard for me,” he said, grabbing his crutches, attempting to stand and balance himself with his good leg.

“No, I want you to stand without your crutches on your two legs.”

“Believe me I would love to but I cannot.”

“Do you believe that God parted the Red Sea for Moses?” he asked.

“Yes.”

Which then would be more difficult for God; to heal your leg or part the Red Sea?”

“Well, parting the Red Sea has to be the greatest miracle of all time,” the beggar said.

“So, healing your leg should be an easy miracle then?” Jesus asked.

“By comparison, perhaps, but why would God pay any attention to me?”

“Because you are his child. He has been paying attention to you. Now you just need to pay some attention back in return.”

“How do I do that?”

Jesus put his hand on his forehead and said, “Listen.”

“Nothing wrong with my hearing,” he said. “I’m listening.”

“Listen from the inside, not the outside,” said Jesus with firmness.

“Okay,” he said, “but all I hear is…. Wait a minute; I hear something inside my head.”

“What does the voice say?”

“It says to drop my crutches and stand on both legs.”

“Will you obey?”

“I would like to, but am afraid I will fall.”

“Moses heard a similar voice telling him to command the Red Sea to part. The great command caused him to fear, but he still obeyed. Now you must do the same. Drop your crutches and walk or return to where you were for the rest of your life.”

He looked Jesus in the eyes, which seemed to increase his faith and said “All right Lord, I am in your hands. I’m dropping my crutches.”

He dropped them and almost fell but strength returned to his bad leg and his balance was caught. Then he said with glee, “My bad leg feels stronger than the good one and it is no longer deformed.

“Try walking back and forth,” said Jesus.

The man struggled a bit a first but soon got used to walking again.”

“Now I want a favor from you,” said Jesus.

“Anything.”

“Go visit people you know in the area, reveal your healing to them and bring me all those with infirmities who have faith to be healed.”

“Happy to do it,” said the man and within minutes he was gone.

Jesus turned to you and said, “We are going to be plenty busy until super.”

You agree with him and look on the horizon expecting people to show up momentarily.

Assignment: Imagine people soon showing up wanting to be healed and Jesus attending to them. Witness how people approach him and his response. Watch the different approaches he uses for the different people and maladies. Take note of whether all were healed. Also take note of what the disciples did with their time,

Affirmation: “I too will obey the inner voice.”

 

Day 140

A Dinner Conversation

If you have been doing the assignments your imagination should by now have created an image of Jesus and his personality that seems somewhat real. Now when you imagine him you have a foundation of mental energy on which to build.

We’ll do one more imaginative experience with Jesus to solidify his image in your mind.

You and Jesus are now walking together approaching the Pharisee’s house. You feel exhilarated and privileged at the same time for being able to spend time with this holy man. You have a question for Jesus:

“Are you sure it will be all right with this guy if I tag along? I can see why he is interested in having you for dinner but he may consider me an intrusion.”

“Don’t worry about it,” said Jesus. “If I read him correctly your presence will not be a problem.”

You find it interesting that Jesus often does not speak in absolutes like the image of the all-knowing messiah painted by fundamentalists. Sometimes he does use the word “if” and speaks like a regular guy who doesn’t know everything that is going to happen. While noting this you also realize that he speaks of some things very specifically as if his sense of knowing far exceeds normal human intelligence.

It turns out that Jesus was right about the Pharisee, whose name was Silas. He did not mind you coming along. He seemed to assume you were an assistant or aid to Jesus.

Silas’ wife served you food and beverage, but stayed out of the way so her husband could focus on his unusual guest. As you settle down for dinner Silas looks at Jesus and says, “You know you’re creating quite a stir among the people, especially among religious authorities, including my people.”

“What have you heard?” asked Jesus.

Some say you are a magician with a bag of tricks and others think you may do a few miracles, but it is because you are in league with the devil.”

“And what do you think?”

“I saw you perform several miracles. You restored hearing to one and sight to another. I’ve never seen a magician do such things and never considered the devil as one who does such good works.” Silas looks at you and asks, “What do you think of this fellow?”

You emphasize to Silas that you think Jesus is the real deal.

“Where does this power you have come from?” asks Silas.

You study Jesus’ face and sense that the full answer has a depth that Silas would not understand so Jesus simplifies.

“The short answer is that God is with me and tells me when a person can be healed. When he says it is okay all I have to do is speak the word. Without his spirit in me I wouldn’t be accomplishing much.”

“Are you the promised Messiah?”

“Time will tell.”

“I haven’t heard of you making any claims, but I would like to know what you think. Are you the Messiah?”

“You haven’t heard of me making claims because I have not made them. My words and my works are my only claims.”

“Your works are so great that they almost scream the word ‘Messiah’ to the people. I don’t think you realize the danger that puts you in because the religious authorities are threatened by you.”

“I do realize,” said Jesus.

“So are you going to tone it down a bit or maybe work the less populated areas so you do not draw so much attention?”

“The Father who is in me tells me to do the opposite of common wisdom. I am to ramp things up, go to where the people are and let the chips fall where they may.”

“You are a braver man than I,” said Silas. “Unlike many of my brethren I wish you no harm and pray that God protects you.”

Assignment: “Finish off the conversation using your imagination. See yourself getting involved and making some comments. See Silas asking more questions and Jesus answering them.

Affirmation: “I will fear no evil.”

 

Day 141

Continuing the Project

As stated earlier the goal of these imaginative excursions with Jesus is to create am image of him made with real matter, but more refined than the physical. The higher mind is the great connecting link between physical existence and the higher realms. The soul cannot come down and speak to you in the physical realm, but if you reach out to it in your mind and heart, communication then becomes possible.

What we are attempting here is an interesting endeavor. We are going beyond mere daydreaming or ordinary imagination. Instead we are attempting to capture enough of your attention so the Jesus of your imagination becomes clothed with actual mental substance. As the seeker clothes him he will be easier to see and imagine each time it is attempted. When the image begins to come to your mind with no effort on your part, this will be a sign that you have a true creation on the mental plane.

When your mental creation is complete you will then have a vehicle that your soul can use to communicate with you. It takes an expenditure of energy on its part so the Higher Self will not participate for entertainment only or to satisfy curiosity. He will make the effort if there is some purpose to be achieved and if you are willing to follow divine will.

Jesus is a good image to create for several reasons.

(1) He was the first on record to correctly demonstrate the Christ consciousness on earth as it is embraced by souls in heaven.

(2) Your soul, which embraces the consciousness of Christ, can more easily access an image of Christ than others because of what it represents.

(3) Many seekers already have a partial image of Christ in their present consciousness. This gives them something on which to build.

Your assignment today is to continue to imagine yourself traveling and conversing with Jesus until he comes real enough to attract the attention of your soul. When this happens you will receive advice and wisdom that will go beyond that which you could imagine on your own.

How long will this take?

It depends on how much attention and energy you put into the project. Your soul could manifest itself through Jesus today, or maybe it could take a few months of effort.

If you want to pursue this endeavor I would recommend you read the gospels of Matthew and John to give you seed thoughts to stimulate your imagination. The Aquarian Gospel also supplies some great material.

Good luck with this aspect of soul contact.

Affirmation: “My thoughts link heaven and earth.”

The Seeker’s Guide to Soul Contact, Part 11

Day 103

Identifying the Beast

One cannot obtain full soul contact if he has the mark of the beast, as mentioned in the Book of Revelations.

Identifying exactly what or who the beast is as been a subject of hot debate for many centuries. The key to understanding inspired words is to realize that they often have several levels of interpretation and those who say theirs is the one and only one are usually not correct.

What the seeker wants to look for with a valid interpretation is whether it accurately corresponds to the text. Often, an interpretation seems to fit with a line or two and then be out of sync with the rest.

I’m going to give you an interpretation that is in harmony with the text. Even if there were no such thing as the Book of Revelation the meaning behind this interpretation would be extremely useful to seekers.

I will give some of the basics here. For an in depth interpretation see my book, The Unveiling.

The Apostle John saw a beast with terrible power and authority rise up out of the sea

Of him it was written:

“And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.

And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.” Rev 13:7-8

The first key is to understand the meaning of the sea. We are told in Revelations itself that it stands for “peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.” Rev 17:15

So, this beast will rise up out of all the peoples of the world and make war with the saints, in other words, those who have soul contact. All those who are not enrolled in the book of life though obtaining soul contact shall actually worship the beast.

This scripture about the beast is very widely known and many are expecting it to be fulfilled by some powerful world leader worse than Hitler who will rule the whole world for a time. Yes, there is always a danger of another Hitler showing up, but students are missing something big here. The beast, or antichrist is not something that is coming in the future, but is already here and has dominated on the earth for thousands of years. This is made clear by John himself:

“And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.” I John 4:3

The antichrist, or the beast was already in the world 2000 years ago and is still here with us.

This brings us to an interesting point worthy of contemplation. What is this beast that has been with us all along that is worshipped y the whole world and attacks those with soul contact, who can see the truth behind the illusions of the world? Obviously, it is not one man since it has been among us for many centuries.

Think about what this could be for this is something the seeker must understand if he is to obtain consistent soul contact. We will continue this discussion in the next lesson.

Affirmation: “I will free myself from the power of the beast.”

 

Day 104

Great Power and Authority

John gives a hint to the mystery of the beast when he tells us that “the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.” Rev 13:2

The beast has great authority, power and position. The key word here is authority. A certain amount of authority in this world is a good thing and insures stability in society, but there are two types of authority. The first is called earned authority and the second unearned. An earned authority is one who can be trusted because he has proven ability. The unearned authority is one who exercises power over others, but has no proof that he earned his position or that his words can be trusted. Notice the scripture says that the beast was given power and authority. He was appointed, instead of earning his place.

The worst misuse by unearned authorities is when they take the place of the greatest authority of all – God. This beast will be so successful at falsely representing the authority of God that he will be worshipped by all the world except the few with soul contact.

Normally worship applies to God and when people worship they think they re worshipping God, but the prophecy tells us that this will not be the case. Instead of worshipping God all but a few will worship the beast who is a substitute for God.

How could such a thing be happening now one may wonder?

Consider this. Where do people get their modes of worship and beliefs? Do they really get them from God, or someone else?

Let us take a typical believer. Where does he get his beliefs and code of conduct?

He may say he gets them from the Bible.

But there are hundreds of different churches with different interpretations. How did he conclude what the Bible really means?

He was told the meaning, not by God, but by authorities in his church. The church leaders telling him which interpretation of the scriptures is correct represents authority from without whereas the true God along with divine authority resides within us all

Leaning on a voice without to be told what to think and how to act is worshiping the beast. The beast is represented by the many unearned authorities in the world who are human substitutes for God. The beast is the god without whereas the true voice comes from the God who speaks from within through soul contact.

Even the various scriptures of the world are instruments used by the beast for a book has its existence in the outward world whereas God resides within. If a person reads any book and takes it literally as the voice of God he is worshipping the beast.

Does this mean the scriptures are evil? No, of course not. But the true seeker will not make the same mistake that has led to hundreds of false interpretations. He will not go by the black and white letter, but run the words by the inner Spirit so the true God can verify true principles behind the words.

Unfortunately, many think they do this, but if you check out their beliefs you will generally find they agree with his church authorities. This tells us that they most probably received their beliefs from substitutes for God without, not the God who speaks from within.

Earlier we discussed the problem of guilt. Guilt is caused by going against the will of an outer authority who is a substitute for God. The true God within is a God of love and does not plague you with guilt, but will offer loving correction instead.

We have discussed the beast working through religion, but the scripture tells us that all he world will worship him. That would include those who are not religious. Your assignment today is to contemplate where one can find the unearned authority of the beast outside of religious authorities.

Affirmation: I will test the outer voices to see if they are in harmony with the inner voice that speaks through my soul.”

 

Day 105

The Extensive Authority of the Beast

In the last lesson we identified the beast as being those with unearned authority who are false substitutes for the voice of God. The beast represents the outer voices that attempt to control us with powerful authority whereas the true God speaks to us within the innermost core of our being.

When understanding this it becomes obvious that this false authority permeates the churches of all religions, some more than others.

It is interesting that the scripture tells us that all except those who are in the book of life will worship there beast. That would include those who are not religious, even the atheists. But do the non-religious worship anything?

The word “worship” concerning the beast here comes from the Greek PROSKUNEO. Literally translated into today’s language it means “to kiss ass”. In more sensitive language it would mean to “fawn over someone” that you see as your boss or master. Do you know anyone who “worships” in today’s world, that is, worships someone other than God? I think all will agree that we live in a world where almost everyone is sucking up to someone else. This worshipping the Beast today is probably even more prevalent than it was in ancient Rome.

The statement “Who is able to make war with him” is like the statement “you can’t fight City Hall”. There is a similarity, but there are many City Halls.

Two of the “City Halls” in the United States are the Democrat and Republican parties themselves. Often times we elect someone who seems to be very sincere about doing a good job and voting his conscience. Then, after the guy spends a little time in Washington he seems to change and his vote becomes very predictable, usually along party lines. Why? Because fighting his party leadership is like fighting City Hall. The party leader says, “This is an important issue for the party, so if you’re a team player you’ll vote with us.” The Congressman soon learns that if he doesn’t play ball, many problems will develop and leadership opportunities just dry up. In addition, he will be shunned by other faithful party members and will not be invited to parties or special meetings. Then there are other City Halls related to politics such as pressure groups, polls, the press.

The fact that the Beast is fawned over tells us that this is not necessarily a Nero type of character that forces people to acknowledge him but is something that almost all give their minds and hearts to voluntarily. In other words, people love the Beast, respect him, kiss up to him and are happy to replace the inner voice with the voice without.

Why would most worship the beast? We humans are lazy and tend to take the path of least resistance. Outer answers are easy to find and they are in black and white. Once accepted no more thinking is required.

The Inner Spirit works with our free will and it takes effort and contemplation to connect with it and come up with an answer. And the answer is never the final answer but is always something to help the seeker on the path of true knowledge that will take him to his next step. Another problem is an answer from the inner Spirit is seen as threatening to the Beast and his agents so the person who is guided by the inner rather than the outer God will often meet with great opposition.

We have shown that the beast is in politics and religion. In the next few lessons we will reveal his presence in other areas.

The next category will be medicine. Contemplate on how outer voices control medicine with an almost godlike authority and who they are that escapes the beast in this area of life.

Affirmation: “The voice of God within delivers me from the beast.”

 

Day 106

The Omnipresent Beast

Most believers in the Revelation of John are waiting for a world dictator to arrive who will be worse than Hitler. They do not realize that this would not fulfill the prophecy which tells us that all but a few will worship him. The Greek word for worship implies a voluntary act of reverence, support and fawning over someone or something. Many people under any ruthless dictator of history are not worshipful toward him. The inner circle who benefits from the power are always supportive, but among the masses many merely pretend to be supportive, but in their hearts loath the guy.

The real beast is supported worshipfully by all except those who have a measure of soul contact. The real beast has more universal worship than any dictator past, present or future.

This is because the real beast is not a man, but an authoritative force than manifests through humanity as a whole and forces compliance that all but a few accept.

The beast has many tentacles that reach into every aspect of life. If he cannot control an individual through religion he will seek to do it through politics. If that doesn’t work he will try healthcare. If that fails he may try business, science, the educational system or maybe a benevolent organization to which one belongs. The beast has its control devices attached to the average individual through several different interests.

Another category besides religion and politics where the beast uses unearned and unjust controlling authority is healthcare.

I received my first taste of the beast in this category when I was 13 years old. In 1958 at the beginning of the space age I was one of those kids that made his own rockets. One exploded prematurely and put me in the hospital for a total of three months with six surgeries altogether. My first stay in the hospital lasted for a month and I soon found out that at bedtime they gave every single patient a sleeping pill whether they needed one or not. During my stay I made friends with numerous other patients and found that all of them took the pills. I took them too. After all, it was doctors orders, they are the experts, and they know what is best for us, right?

Even though we all took the pills a part of our minds realized that the policy was not logical as a common joke among us was, “They woke me up to give me a sleeping pill.”

After a month’s stay I was released and I soon discovered that I had difficulty sleeping without the nightly pills. Fortunately, after a couple weeks of not taking them my sleep patterns returned to normal. I then realized that those pills did me more harm than good and decided to never take them again. During my other stays in the hospital I never took them and had no problem with sleep.

This was an early awakening for me to the error of blindly following unjust authority.

When my kids were young we had a family doctor who seemed like an intelligent sincere fellow and dabbled a little in natural medicine but was no fanatic by any means, but overall he was pretty much establishment. Even so, other doctors sensed he was not completely one of them.

One day he criticized another doctor’s diagnosis. This other doctor happened to have a lot of authority in the hospital and trumped up a charge against our doctor and had him barred from the hospital. Since this was the only hospital in town, this was a great inconvenience for him and he was barely able to make a living. Nevertheless, we continued to go to him because he was the best doctor in town.

Our doctor received a taste of the authority of the beast, but many have endured much more.

The assignment today is to think about areas of medicine and healthcare where the beast exercises unjust authority and how he makes war against those who oppose him.

Affirmation: “I see through attempts of unjust control.”

 

Day 107

Prescriptions from the Beast

The last assignment is to find places in the area of health where the beast asserts unjust authority.

The beast exerts tremendous authority in this department of life, especially with prescription drugs.

When you look at the statistics it becomes obvious that the doctors and authorities pushing these drugs are doing so with unearned, unproven authority.

For instance, 16% of hospital admissions are related to adverse reactions to medicines.

Prescription drugs are the 4th leading cause of death, ahead of pulmonary disease, diabetes and auto accidents.

Almost 1.3 million people went to U.S. emergency rooms due to adverse drug effects in 2014, and about 124,000 died from those events.

There are ten times more deaths per year due to adverse drug reactions to properly prescribed drugs than illegal ones.

A study, published in the journal Mayo Clinic Proceedings, shows that seven out of 10 Americans take at least one prescription drug.

More than half of Americans take two prescription mediations, and 20 percent of Americans are on at least five prescription medications. Over a third of people 55 and older take five or more prescription drugs; 9 percent were taking more than 10.

You would think that people would be alarmed at the dangers of prescription drugs and their use would be going down, but the number of prescriptions filled for American adults and children rose 85 percent between 1997 and 2016.

On top of prescription drugs, non prescription ones also have to be added into the equation for most people take several of these fairly regularly.

So why does society keep increasing their intake of drugs when the data seem to indicate they do more harm than good? There are several reasons:

(1) Follow the money. Big Pharma currently takes in about $450 billion a year in the United States. The big profits only give them incentives to push more pills on us through advertising and the medical system.

(2) Medial doctors are not educated in alternatives to drugs so they work with what they have been taught.

(3) Prescribing a drug is the line of least resistance. Rather than dong some research on an alternatives it is easier to just write a prescription. Besides it often makes the patient feel that something is being done to help him. Orthodox medical doctors have close to zero education in nutrition or alternative medicine or, many of which are much more helpful than prescription drugs.

So, what happens when the average person has a visit with a doctor and is given a prescription?

Unfortunately, he usually accepts it without question. To follow authority without question is to receive the mark of the beast in the forehead. The doctor has the mark of the beast in the right hand as this mark signifies labor for unearned authority or working for such authority without questioning.

Those who have the mark of the beast are like simple animals in consciousness who do what they are told without question – this is a herd type of mentality.

The scripture says that the beast will attack those who do not worship him. The assignment today is to think about how unjust authorities representing the beast attack those who do not submit to it but present alternative health solutions.

Contemplate being one with your soul and look at the situation through the eyes of the Higher Self. Does it support blind acceptance of prescription drugs and does it nudge you into researching alternatives?

Affirmation: “I see and refuse to be led by the blind.”

 

Day 108

Great Authority

So what happens to those who promote alternatives to prescription drugs?

The beast through the drug industry attacks in every way possible. If anyone uses the word “cure” in relation to anything alternative they will be prosecuted to the fullest extent possible and many have been jailed for merely doing their best to help others with alternatives.

Often when a patient does a little research into natural remedies and runs them by the doctor he will be met with a disapproving shaking of the head. He will be told that foods we eat have little effect on health as long as we eat the basics. He will rarely allow you to substitute a natural cure for one that involves pharmaceuticals, chemo, radiation or surgery. Some will tolerate you experimenting with a few natural things as long as you make following his instructions the first priority. He will then take credit for any healing that occurs.

That said, it is important that the seeker remember that few things can be consistently interpreted in strictly black and white terms. Once in a while a pharmaceutical drug may be temporality helpful, but I would say that in over 90% of the time the patient would be better off just eliminating them or replacing them with some natural treatment.

The reason they permeate society as they do is they are supported by the unearned authority of the beast.

This great authority of the beast does all in its power to restrict natural cures and hurt those who advocate them. They are restricted by law from outright putting heretics to death, as in the old days, but they still create many problems. Here are a few things that those with the mark of the beast do.

(1) Ridicule. This is the most ubiquitous line of attack and it is very effective. If they can make others feel ashamed to be associated with a particular belief or practice then opposition is immediately neutralized.

(2) Group Think. The authority of the beast does an excellent job of convincing the masses that their way is just the way it is done and if you do not follow then there is something wrong with you.

(3) Fear. You are told that rejecting orthodox treatment is very dangerous. Your life may even be at stake if you do not listen to them.

(4) Superiority. The doctors are much more educated than you in healthcare and not listening to them is not smart. It puts you in the tin foil hat category.

They do not realize how lopsided their education is. Whereas they are educated in orthodox medicine most have very limited knowledge of alternatives and have no earned authority to make judgments on it.

They are like the guy who is an expert on rice and knows everything about every variety, but knows nothing about other foods that are needed to supply good nutrition for the whole body.

(5) Regulation. They try and regulate everything possible to hinder alternative practitioners. Legislation has been promoted that would require herbs and vitamins to only be available though medical doctors by prescription.

(6) Threats. Alternative practitioners have many threats hanging over their heads. If they ever use the word “cure” they could face serious jail time. If a patient dies under their care they can be sued or prosecuted in some cases.

The beast thus seeks to normalize the abnormal and dangerous intake of prescription drugs. It not only increases his authority but numbs the minds of many so they are easier to control.

Healthcare is just one area of life the beast seeks control and drugs are just one division of health. Contemplate other areas in health where authorities push their will upon the public.

Affirmation: “I will question without fear of what others think.”

 

Day 109

The Vaccination Epidemic

Extremely fertile soil for the authoritarian beast lies in its control and manipulation of vaccinations, which occurs on a worldwide basis.

100 years ago kids received vaccinations for one disease – smallpox. That was a very dreaded and deadly disease so this precaution made a lot of sense. Later came the polio vaccination and any risk from this seemed to outweigh the danger poised by that disease.

Today we have gone way overboard and vaccinate our kids for 14 different diseases, some of them quite minor such as measles, mumps and chicken pox. Most of my friends and I caught all of these when I was a kid in the 1950s and they proved to be a mild inconvenience with the bonus of getting off school for a few days.

They will often administer five vaccines to small children, even babies, at a time. President Trump made the comment that the vaccine schedule was “meant for a horse, not for a child.”

And concern over vaccinations crosses party lines. Chief of citizens voicing concerns over vaccines is Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Kennedy is concerned about the link between vaccines and autism and believes there has been insufficient research on the problem.

He says that, “We need to do double-blind placebo testing. Because particularly when it comes to injecting aluminum or mercury into babies, the consequences may be latent. In other words, they may not manifest or diagnosed to age 3 or 4. So the current protocols, which require testing for vaccines of sometimes as little as 48 hours, are not going to disclose the kind of dangers that the public and the regulators ought to know about.”

He also says that the authorities are deceptive about the use of mercury in the vaccines. They have not been taken out of all and flue shots contain “mega doses of it.”

The biggest concern over vaccinations is its possible link to autism, a terrible affliction that is plaguing our children.

Autism is a modern disease, first diagnosed in 1943. From then until he 1980’s cases were fairly rare. Then, after Congress gave drug companies immunity from lawsuits and the expansion of vaccines took off so did cases if autism jumping up over 13 times what it was before 1980. Today, one out of 150 eight year olds has autism.

This dramatic increase did not happen without some cause behind it and many concerned parents fear it is related to vaccines.

Even though polls show that the majority of parents have concerns over vaccines and autism over 90% of them go ahead and have it done to their kids anyway. The pressures from the authoritarian system on parents is becoming increasingly potent. Public schools require vaccinations and exemptions are becoming increasingly difficult to get. The pressure to conform is enormous.

Rebecca Bredow of Michigan found this out in October 2017, for she was jailed for refusing to vaccinate her nine year old son.. This may be just the beginning of additional force as the beast increases in authority in this area. You would never know that a large portion of the public are becoming concerned about the dangers of vaccination if you listen to the Medea. Anyone who questions the authorities in this matter is portrayed as unreasonable a best to anti science and insane at worst.

The authorities under the power of the beast are not as concerned about benefits or dangers of vaccines as thye are their base of power and mandatory vaccines is a potent step in securing that base. Cheerleaders for the beast would rather have authority over others than any other asset.

The largest problem is not so much who is right or wrong, but the loss of freedom of choice.

Assignment: Contemplate other areas concerning health where the beast has great authority.

Affirmation: “I will do my own research and discover the truth,”

 

Day 110

A Cure Worse than the Disease

The authority of the beast reveals itself quite strongly in the treatment of cancer. When the doctor tells a patient he has cancer it is often seen as a death sentence. The person is usually scared to death and willingly puts his life totally in the hands of the medical authorities.

Those who wish to escape the mark of the beast will not blindly trust these authorities but will do some research of their own.

Doctors that automatically recommend chemo or radiation are often seen as the ultimate authorities to rely on for cancer treatments but consider this.

Back in 2004, an Australian study on the effectiveness of chemo showed the 5 year survival rate was 5%. On top of this, chemo and radiation stimulate the growth of additional cancers. Perhaps the worst thing about chemo and radiation is the decline of the quality of life. The quality of life of a person receiving orthodox treatments is often far inferior to that of one receiving no treatment.

Let us say that you had a projected two years to live. Would you be willing to live two years of consistent torture to gain a couple extra weeks or would you rather go without treatment and live the two yeas in functional condition with less pain and discomfort?

Fortunately an increasing number of cancer victims are researching out of the mainstream and discovering cures that work better than chemo and radiation and do not lower the quality of life.

Suzanne Somers felt ill and was told that cancer riddled most of her body. Instead of accepting orthodox treatment she did some research and discovered she had been breathing in black mold from a house she was renting. After moving out she concentrated on natural cures and completely regained her health. Today, at 71 she still looks great.

Parker Jensen had a terrific run-in with the beast of authority. In 2003 when he was 12 yesars old he was diagnosed with cancer and told he needed chemotherapy. Both he and his parents did not think this was the best course and resisted.

The medical authorities filed against them in juvenile court and a judge ordered the state to take custody of the boy.

Fortunately, the warrant could not served, for the family fled the state to Idaho. Their troubles did not end as the father spent some time in jail for his resistance to the beast. The parents concluded that the doctors gave the wrong diagnoses, concentrated on natural cures and Parker has been healthy ever since. He is now a happily married man of 26.

The stories of those who have rejected the beast and cured their own cancer with alternative treatments are legion. And perhaps the best part is the alternative cures do not cause them to suffer so intensely as do some of the orthodox treatments.

For those who do not have cancer the best course of action is a healthy lifestyle. Drink pure water and eat foods free of chemicals and pesticides.

Cancer is aggravated by suppressed emotions so do not suppress and do not hold grievances. Be honest and open with your emotional communications.

There are many alternative approaches and some work better than others.

A seeker who does get cancer should not rule out all orthodox treatments, but definitely should look at the value of alternatives. If one does lean toward following the doctors orders he should ask this question.

“Would you recommend this treatment to your own child?”

It is interesting that many physicians do not use their own treatments on their own family members.

Seekers can find many alternatives by merely Goggling, “cancer alternative treatments.”

The assignment today is to continue to think of other places in the area of healthcare where the strong authority of the beast surfaces.

Affirmation: “I trust, but verify.”

 

Day 111

The Semmelweis reflex

Authorities in the health industry have been wrong many times in the past as well as the present. History tells us that when a better way is found that threatens the established authority of the beast that the authorities affected will ridicule and attack the innovator.

This automatic, often mindless attack, characterized by reflex-like rejection of new knowledge because it contradicts entrenched norms, beliefs, or paradigms has a name. It is called the Semmelweis reflex.

Where this name originated is an interesting story.

Ignaz Semmelweis was a Hungarian physician working in Vienna hospitals in 1847 when he became very concerned about the high mortality rate of women giving childbirth in one of the hospitals. He researched what was different with this hospital from others and discovered that many doctors delivering babies had, hours before, been working with corpses doing autopsies. He concluded that they were carrying something invisible on their hands that was infecting the mothers.

This happened before Louis Pasteur confirmed the germ theory so the idea that we may transfer invisible little lives with our hands seemed strange at the time. Even so, Semmelweis’ research indicated that something deadly was being transferred and came up with a simple solution. He instituted a policy in the hospital that physicians should wash their hands before delivering babies.

Amazingly, the mortality rate went down a whopping 90%.

Problem solved, right?

Wrong, his problem was just beginning. After two years of tremendous success his job was terminated and became frustrated with the meager work he could find. Medical authorities ridiculed him for believing that washing hands was necessary because of seeming invisible that was causing infections.

He accused the authorities as being accomplices to murder if they refused to accept washing hands before medical procedures.

He left Vienna and moved to Budapest. The only job he could find was as an unpaid volunteer in an obstetric ward. Again he implemented hand washing and the mortality rate dropped to near zero.

He felt that he had made a simple discovery that could save many lives and tried to convince the medical authorities to to adopt it.

All his efforts did was inflame the beast of authority and they ridiculed him and attacked back. Finally at the age of 47 authorities forced him into a mental asylum where he was beaten by the guards and died of an infection within two weeks.

The beast killed the messenger, but it could not kill the message. Within twenty years after his death the evidence of the benefits of washing hands became so overpowering, especially with the discovery of germs, that even the representatives of the beast had to yield and give in to the truth.

Does this mean that the authority of the beast was defeated? No. Far from it. As society progresses the beast will lose authority in certain departments of life, but when he does he just established a new base of authority in another.

We have already discussed two of the current bases. The first is an increasing authority over vaccinations, pushing so many that obvious dangers are looming. The second is orthodox radiation and chemo treatments for cancer while rejecting with a Semmelweis reflex many promising alternatives.

Cancer is the second leading cause of death in the United States. Heart disease is number one. The assignment today is to contemplate where the beast uses his authority in this area of health and where those who resist the beast are making their efforts.

Affirmation: “I decide, not by reflex, but by reason.”

 

 

Day 112

A Good Heart

Since heart disease is the number one cause of death people are very concerned if anything seems out of order. Whenever one goes to a doctor he always checks his heart and will often run tests to check for levels of cholesterol.

Concern about heart health causes many to make frequent trips to the doctor which often results in discovery of other problems with the patient winding up taking three or more prescription drugs, thus yielding more power to unproven authority.

And talk about unproven authority. Since 1953 the medical system has been promoting the idea that cholesterol is bad for your heart and one needs statin drugs to control it. This myth originated from a flawed study in 1953 Dr. Ancel Keys where he kept the data that supported the dangers of high cholesterol and discarded that which did not.

Statistics show that that more than 50 percent of those admitted to hospitals with heart disease have normal cholesterol while many with healthy hearts actually have high cholesterol.

Cholesterol is an essential ingredient for good physical health. As you know, oil and water do not mix, but they must work together in our bodies, so the liver manufactures cholesterol to assist in this process that provides lubrication for the body.

In addition, cholesterol enables the production of hormones, vitamin D, aids in digestion and combats cellular damage, which increases as we age. It is essential to the immune system and brain functioning and helps to relieve stress.

The amount of cholesterol you need will vary with your diet and lifestyle. Some people actually need a fairly high level of it.

Determining an approach for good heart health is a fairly complex problem, but if it can just be reduced to a simple test measuring cholesterol the doctor’s job becomes much more simple. Then, later, when more problems occur expensive surgery or a transplant may be required.

Doctors mainly concentrate on drugs and surgery for heart health and will offer some encouragement to exercise. They warn patients to stay away from saturated fats. In this case, they are mistaken as saturated fats from natural sources are good for your heart. Some sources include, olive and coconut oil, nuts, wild fish, grass-fed meats, seeds, avocados, and eggs, preferably free range.

For years we were warned that eggs were bad for our heart, but opinion is changing on this. A pioneer in promoting eating eggs is Dr, Joel Wallach. He personally eats over a dozen eggs a day, is 77 years old, never goes to a doctor or takes drugs and is in perfect health.

A simple healthy diet and moderate exercise can do much to insure a healthy heart. The number one food to avoid is processed sugar and artificial sweeteners. Avoid standard sodas with vigilance. For sweeteners raw honey is your best bet. Next in line would be maple syrup or molasses.

Avoid processed foods and oils with trans fats. For cooking use either butter, avocado or grape seed oil. For consumption use extra virgin olive oil or coconut oil. The more raw fruits and vegetables you eat the better.

The final advice for good heart health is for the seeker to maintain a “good heart.” One is said to have a good heart if he is friendly, helpful, loving and kind. There is a correlation between having a good heart from a spiritual angle and a good physical heart.

The assignment today is to reflect on the health of your own heart, not only the physical aspect, but the spiritual. Are you following the will of your soul in maintaining a good spiritual heart and outlook on life and relationships? What more need you do?

Affirmation: “My heart radiates with vitality and goodwill.”

 

Day 113

Let the Patient Heal Himself

The beast above all other things seeks power over the souls of men. Some may add that it seeks money, but when this seems to be the case we will find that the motivation behind the money is power and authority more than the material goods that money will buy.

Some individuals exercising great authority over the souls of men live fairly frugal lives giving the impression they are spiritual. This will sometimes hide the fact that their true motive is in alignment with the beast which seeks authority.

Because money will often enhance power and authority the representatives of the beast usually seek to obtain as much of it as possible, even those claiming to guide followers on the spiritual path.

A great example of misplaced authority in the health field is related to us by Dr. Joel Wallach. He has successfully promoted natural cures through nutrition for many years and has been attacked numerous times by medical authorities. He discovered that most children suffering from muscular dystrophy could be cured with extra selenium and supplements of trace minerals. He told Jerry Lewis about this, who at the time was very successfully heading up the yearly muscular dystrophy marathon.

Jerry was very excited about the possibility and suggested to the medical authorities involved that they look into Wallach’s claims.

Instead of investigating they dismissed Wallach as a quack and when Jerry continued to want to investigate they fired him and threatened to sue him for all he was worth if he said anything that would damage the reputation of the organization.

Therefore, it became a mystery why the organization’s greatest money maker for over 40 years was suddenly dropped until Wallach gave the details. They liked the money he raised, but keeping their power was even more important. They would lose both if all parents had to do was spend a few dollars on a food supplement.

Another disease that medical authorities do not want any simple inexpensive plan to replace them in is Alzheimer’s.

Dr. Dale Bredesen thinks he has done just this. He has created what he calls the Bredesen Protocol which is a combination of nutrition, fasting, exercise and lifestyle changes. If caught in the early stages he says he can reverse Alzheimer’s in nine out of ten patients.

Others claim that just taking daily supplements of virgin coconut oil can reverse the disease.

And why isn’t the authoritative medical establishment rushing to verify these simple inexpensive treatments?

The simple answer is this. If the patient can gain a little knowledge and then treat himself he will no longer need the medical authorities. He will no longer have to worship at their feet and give them large amounts of money.

Medical doctors have their place. If someone has an accident and needs patched up, or needs a corrective surgical procedure then a well trained doctor can be a life saver. Unfortunately their greatest authority is exerted on patients suffering from disease and in treating most of these they have not shown us to have a justified authority.

We could go through many different aeas of health and show how average people who researched health for themselves have freed themselves from the need for medical authorities escept on rare occasions.

The tendency to over medicate has proven dangerous, for drugs only temporarily relieve symptoms, including depression. The one things that every mass shooter I have researched had in common is that they all took mind altering prescription drugs. The recent Las Vegas shooter was no exception. He took a powerful psychotropic drug called diazepam. Is the increase in mass shootings linked to mind alerting drugs? That seems to be the only common denominator for the increase.

Next we will examine where the beast establishes his authority in the educational system. The seeker can contemplate how this may be playing out.

Affirmation: “I will question all outer authority.”

 

Day 114

The Expanding Beast

The seeker may not suspect that the beast of authority is present in our public schools as well as our institutions of higher learning.

Isn’t educating out kids a good thing with few drawbacks?

Yes, education is good. The beast would prefer total ignorance for the less light and more ignorance there is the greater will be his authority Humanity has moved into mass education contrary to the will of the beast but once humanity takes a step forward the beast of authority assesses the new situation and then determines how he can make the best of it by re-establishing authority through new avenues.

Sometimes a little progress actually offers him greater opportunity for control than the mass ignorance of the past.

For instance, the Nazis put a lot of attention on educating the youth, but instead of creating enlightenment the beast stepped in with his authority to control their minds to force allegiance to a destructive belief system.

So, is the beast having any success exercising his authority in the educational system today?

More than one may think.

The first thing the beast does to maintain his base of power is to control the money. Over 90% of elementary and secondary students attend public schools. It matters not if your child participates in the system you still have to pay taxes to support it. If you send your child to a private school you still have to pay taxes to support the public schools plus the extra money for the private one.

The money spent for each child in the public system is about three times that of a private school.

The latest statistics I have available puts the average cost per year for a student in the public system to be $10,700. Some states are much higher. For instance the cost per student is almost $20,000 in New York.

The average cost for private school attendance in the United States is $3,267 per year.

You would think that with such a potential savings that the stewards of our tax dollars would be demanding some type of voucher system that would allow parents to send more children to private schools. A handful of parents, educators and politicians are advocating for this, but they are in the minority and ridiculed by the powers-that-be.

Are private schools resisted because they are inferior?

Not really. Many politicians who are outwardly strong advocates for public education send their own kids to private schools. Their actions verify what their true thoughts are.

Even though the cost of private schools is lower average people cannot afford them, but many of those who have higher incomes spend the extra money because of their high quality.

The results speak for themselves. 88 percent of senior-year students in private high schools applied to colleges, compared to only 58 percent of seniors in public high schools.

It seems to defy logic that there would be so much resistance to a more economical and efficient system but when you realize the ever present goals of the beast it makes sense. The public schools are a source of great sums of money that flows through the hands of a very authoritarian bureaucracy. Such an authoritative system can control what is fed into the minds of students much better than a private and independent school.

Our kids are not brainwashed like the Nazis yet, but the powers of the beast are pushing us in that direction.

Assignment: Contemplate how the authority of the beast is seeking to exert itself in our education system and control our teachers and children.

Affirmation: “I will look through the eyes of my soul and see the hidden workings of the beast.”

McCall Gathering 2007, Part 38

This entry is part 38 of 54 in the series McCall Gathering 2007

Finding the God Within

JJ: So let us go through this parable and examine it. What do you suppose the golden apples represented?

Audience: Truth?

JJ: Close

Audience: Wisdom?

JJ: Right the golden apples represented wisdom. In this life Hercules had to learn wisdom. For the third labor of Hercules  he was sent and not given much instruction. Now how do you tell someone how to go and learn wisdom? How do you learn to be wise?  How do you learn to make the right decisions? You learn it by going through it.

When in a quest in search of wisdom we get help along the way and others who have trodden the path come and give us good advice. This was the first thing that his teacher from the other side saw and so he sent him a Nereus to give him hints, and what did Hercules do? He ignored the hints saying, “well that does not sound like much help to me, I will find my own way.”

So Hercules ignored Nereus and this happens to us in our efforts to find wisdom. We get a lot of good advice but we often ignore it. Because if we have not gone through it, even though the advice is good, it is very difficult to see whether the advice is good or bad. How often have we been told something by our parents, by other teachers, by wise people – something that we ignore and then later on in life we think, boy you know that guy was right after all or my father and mother were smarter than I thought they were or something like this. The first step in learning wisdom is ignoring what we are told. This seems like a step backwards but it is a necessary step on the path to wisdom because wisdom has to be discovered pretty much on our own through our own experiences and somebody cannot just come and give it to us.

Even though the advice we are given is good we have to learn how to incorporate it into our lives so that we can really grasp it and hold on to it. The next thing Hercules did was wrestle a dragon and what do you suppose the dragon represented? The dragon represented illusion – and glamour, which also leads to illusion. We think we are really important and then we have wrong beliefs that we are tricked into believing that we have not unraveled yet and found the full truth behind and so on the path to wisdom we have to face these glamours. We have to face our ego; we have to face all the things that have been tricking us, the things we have been taught that may or may not be true. When Hercules attacked the dragon and tried to overcome it what happened?

Audience: The dragon got stronger.

JJ: The dragon got stronger. So if we just tackle our ego and illusions directly and wrestle with them they only get stronger. How did Hercules overcome the dragon?

Audience: He lifted it into the air.

JJ: He lifted it into the air, was does that symbolize?

Audience: Higher mind

JJ: Right, he lifted it into the light of day, the light of reasoning, the light of the mind, the light of the soul, and in the light the wrong beliefs, the illusions, the glamour and the ego – the feeling of self-importance that we have are all put into the right place. When they are in the right we slay the dragon that keeps us from the golden apples.

Then Hercules continued on his way and encountered perhaps his biggest problem of all and what was it? He was deceived by the false teacher. Have any of you ever encountered a guy like this before who just captivated you.  You thought, wow this guy is great, he is almost like God and I can trust everything he says. So what did this do to Hercules in his search?

Audience: He stopped searching.

JJ: Yes, he stopped his search. Remember that Christian bumper sticker that says, “I found it?” When you find it then you stop your search for wisdom because you found it. I found Jesus or some guru or some politician and I have been searching for the right guy and now I have found him so now I can rest.

But wisdom is a growing thing and you can never get all the wisdom in the universe so you never stop looking for it. When you find the ultimate teacher, the ultimate philosophy, then you stop in your search for wisdom and it ends and not only does it end, but you start going backwards. And when does it go backwards? When the teacher turns on you and he binds you with chains.

First it looks as though he is going to free you. He is going to free you because you do not have to search for golden apples anymore. You can end your quest – it is over – you have found it and that is it. The disciple may say something like, “I am saved by the blood of Jesus, I have found my guru and my guru is god, and I do not have to think anymore because he knows all the answers and I just ask him and what he says is it, there is no questioning.”

So the teacher binds you with chains for a whole year. A year is a symbolic amount, meaning quite a long time. This is what happens to a seeker – they are often bound not only for a year but for a lifetime and often several lifetimes in a certain belief system that hold them in bondage and keeps them from looking within and discovering wisdom. This keeps them from being reliant on the true God within and they rely on the god without instead.

The Beast of the Book of Revelations is really the god without. When God is substituted by a human being, a thought system, a book or anything in physical form, when you look toward that something without as being in the place of the God within, you are worshiping the beast in the Book of Revelations.

The mark of the beast on the right hand symbolizes that you will not do any labor unless it is approved by your outward authority that has taken the place of God. The mark of the beast on the forehead symbolizes that you will not think any thought unless it is approved by this outward authority which has taken the place of God that sits in the temple of God and shows himself to be God. Ten we have the 144,000 who have escaped the mark of the beast. Instead of a mark in they have the name of God – and where is that name written?

Audience: Within

JJ: Within where? Within their foreheads. The 144,000 that are free from the mark of the beast have found the name of God written in their foreheads. What is the name of God? It is basically you – you are one with God, like Christ taught, “I and my Father are one and you are to be one with me as I and my Father are one.”

In other words, when you realize where God, the Father is you become free. Jesus said that the “Father is within me” and so when you recognize that the true authority, the true teacher and the true wisdom is within then you no longer have the mark of the beast on the right hand because your actions are determined from within. You no longer have the mark of the beast on the forehead because your thoughts and what you believe is determined by what is verified within.

Both within and without are important, we can’t say everything is within and we can’t say everything is without because the universe is a composite of everything within and everything without but the purpose of that which is without is to stimulate and the purpose of that which is within is to verify.

You notice all these things that happened to Hercules stimulated him. They happened in the world without and they stimulated him and when the lesson was over it was verified within himself. Deep within the very core of his being he registered the truth of what was taught him from without.

It took him a whole year of being chained by this teacher before he thought something is wrong with this picture. Now imagine the first six months he accepted him and he says well I guess the teacher has his reasons for chaining me here. After all, he is infallible.

Then eight months, nine months and finally after a year he begins to smell a rat. Each of us can only take suppression so long no matter how much you believe in a book a person or a thing. After so much time being chained the Son of God will rise up and break the chains and say I am not going to take it any longer. And this is what Hercules finally did.

He could not take his teacher any longer and the cute part of the story is that he took the teacher and he chained him to the chair and left him to fend for himself. Now his teacher could begin to understand the same lesson that he just learned because he had yet to trod the path that Hercules had taken.

This is interesting because often times the teacher is not as advanced as the student. One for the teachings of the ancient wisdom is that you should not allow yourself to be spiritually taught by somebody that is farther back on the path than you yourself are or you will wind up being chained and imprisoned by the person. You know how it is, even in your work career. If your boss thinks you are overshadowing him maybe he will pass you up for promotion and he will do everything he can to destroy you. It is kind of human nature to have that happen. Has anyone ever had that happen before? You show up your boss a little bit and he gets threatened? Show up your husband and beat him in tennis and he gets all bent out of shape.

McCall Gathering, 2007, Part 17

This entry is part 17 of 54 in the series McCall Gathering 2007

The Unveiling, Part 12

The Number of the Beast

“Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of humanity; (it says man but is humanity in the Greek) and that number is six hundred three score and six.”  Revelation 13:18

Six is the number of the Piscean age and the strong authority of the beast governs that age. The three six’s are symbolic of the three levels of control – control on the physical, control on the emotional and control on the plane of the mind. When you have a beast that is charge in of you, you have to physically do what you are told, you have to feel the way you are told to feel and you have to think the way you are told to think. If you do not have the six on you and bow to strong control on all these three levels, you will be attacked by the beast and his agents wherever they may be.

Fortunately, we do not have control by the beast here in America that some of the other nations have but we made an image to the beast. Now the scripture talks about people who have escaped the beast. Let me just go into that and then we will wrap it up.

(Revelation 14:1) In the very next verse in chapter 14 it says, “I beheld a lamb and he stood upon mount Zion and with him, one hundred and forty four thousand having his Fathers name written…”

Where was the Father’s name written? In their foreheads. And the beast has his follower’s number and name written where?

Audience: The hand and the forehead.

JJ: Hands and foreheads but those who escape the beast find the name of God written in their foreheads and, in other words, the disciple finds the throne of God in his “forehead.” He found the name of God in his forehead and when we find that name, the beast who represents the god on the outside comes after him. That person on the outside representing the beast speaks with authority as if he were God standing there telling us what to do, whether it be a religious leader, a political leader or someone else. If the religious leader speaks and says jump then you jump. If he says that you have to change vocation or you have to marry this person, we have a revelation from God on it, well you do it, because you are under the control of the beast and you are obeying this person from the outside who is taking the place of God and that is what the beast is – he takes the place of God and he is on the outside.

You escape the beast by disregarding those on the outside and you find the name of God is written in your forehead and inside of yourself you find God. Only then can you escape the mark of the beast.

Audience: Weren’t the 144,000 beheaded?

JJ: No it does not say that, it talks about other souls that were faithful and were beheaded for their sacrifices.

Audience: I think it says that those who did not take the mark were beheaded and I think it Revelation 14, or 19 and 20.

JJ: (Flipping the pages) I don’t think it mentions the mark there, it says, “For the word of God they were beheaded.” A lot of people are beheaded if they do not take the mark. In other words, if you are in North Korea and say I am going to rebel and to hell the with Kim Jong Ill then you will be killed. Now fortunately because of laws written into the Constitution, Curtis and I could actually say what we wanted at our ex-communication trial and the worst they could do was ex-communicate us and confine us to eternal torture on the other side. In their minds this is actually worse than death.

After I was ex-communicated one of the brethren who presided over my trial came up to me and he said he wished we lived in the old days where they could put somebody like me to death.

Audience: He said that to you? Did you kick him in the shins!

That’s not my style but I think I did try to illustrate the illusion he was in. But that is what he said to me and I can’t remember what his name was. A lot of the high priests at the trial were my friends, but I did not know this guy very well and he was on the council. He came up and said that to me after I was ex-communicated.

Curtis: You know we could have sued the Mormon Church.

JJ: Yes, we could have because they ex-communicated against there own laws.

Audience: You could be that witness that caused the stir.

JJ: Yes, well, we will eventually caused more stir. Curtis and I caused quite a bit of stir but not a national scale yet. Any questions before we end this segment.

Audience: Question about the beast – you mentioned about the beast, and how the principle of the beast represented in correspondence to certain historical events with the fire coming down from heaven and the second beast and all that and I was wondering if you also had an understanding that those had an esoteric or physiological significance.

JJ; I talk about it in my book. One of the more interesting things is that it has an external interpretation that very closely corresponds but it also has an internal alternative interpretation in my book that applies in the life of the disciple himself. He has within him a beast that he has to overcome. So there are several interpretations to it but the thing that is interesting about the beast is it applies externally and every once in a while you find that there are scriptures that apply very close to external application. You can externally illustrate how the principle of the beast works by the using the power of dictatorships and the Untied States and the two horns of lamb and all those things.

Audience: What would the fire from heaven represent that the second beast brought down.

JJ: You mean the internal application of the fire from heaven.

Audience: Yes

JJ: I can’t remember exactly what I wrote on that and I will look it up and see what I wrote on that for you. Heaven always symbolizes higher consciousness, so the fire would be the spirit coming down from the higher consciousness. A lot of times even those who are upon the path of illusion do contact fire from heaven and it can be used for right or wrong. When the disciple first starts on his path he gets a touch of the fire of the spirit and it drives him crazy at times. This is what happened to Hercules before he began his labors. He was trying to become an aspiring disciple and do what’s right and it says he killed his twin brother and his family and mother and father.

DK points out that this illustrates that the disciple, when he first catches a glimpse of the spiritual energy, is driven almost mad in the beginning of his quest. The beginner cannot handle very much spiritual energy and if he gets too much he is driven mad.

Another example is David Koresh. He was sincerely trying to be a disciple in his mind yet he got more than he could handle and went crazy and the same with Jim Jones. He really went crazy and forced all his followers to drink poison Kool-Aid. And yet he was trying to get on the path and he got a little too much energy and it drove him berserk. And this happened to Hercules in one of his lifetimes and so this happens to disciples when they begin the path.

It is a very dangerous time and you can tell that we have a few strange people that come and go on the Keys list and you can tell that some of them have a bit more energy than they can handle. Susan and Sterling have a very interesting list where they have some really strange people show up. One guy there thinks he is God and another guy there thinks he is mighty and strong, another thinks he is Moses. I like hanging out there every once in a while because it is interesting to follow what those guys are thinking.

Curtis: Well, we cannot all be Moses and when I had a witness on reincarnation it was like that, it was like a fire, like a burning connected basically by the Kundalini awakening with not just one center, it was like the whole flow of energy, it was like being supercharged and that is why I had to release that and take it out to my Sunday school class. It is the kind of thing that you cannot hold in and I did not want to hold it in and it was something that I wanted everybody to know.

McCall Gathering, 2007, Part 16

This entry is part 16 of 54 in the series McCall Gathering 2007

The Unveiling, Part 11
Mark of the Beast

And the beast, it says, “causes all, both rich and poor, free and bonded, to receive a mark in their right hand or in their foreheads.”

The common interpretation today is they are developing this computer chip and we are going to receive an implant of a chip in our right hand and when we go through a scanner we have to pass our hand over the scanner or we will not be able to buy anything. The problem with this interpretation is even if that were true it would not be that terrible of a thing unless it was misused and we can misuse money as it is today – which we must have to buy or sell. That has nothing to do with the power of the beast to bring real terror into the hearts of mankind. Kim Jong Ill, the leader of North Korea, with no computer chip creates terror in the hearts of his people much greater than if someone had a computer chip in their hand.

And do you think that if a dictator took over this country that he would put the chip in the right hand after reading this! Everybody knows the prediction! This would be so obvious that everybody would think, well this guy must be the beast he is going to put a computer chip in our right hands!  Now it also says they will receive the number of his name. Hitler put a number on his Jewish subjects. Did he use a right or left arm to do that with?

Audience: Left arm

JJ: Why do you suppose he picked the left arm? Because everybody would think that Hitler must be the beast. So instead of picking the right arm like the scripture says Hitler read this and thought oh, they will think I am the beast if I put a number on their right hand or arm so I am going to put it on the left arm. So he put it on everybody’s left wrist which was pretty close to the hand actually. He avoided the hand because it says hand so he put it just above the hand.

He avoided the hand and he put it on the left arm instead of the right arm and thought, “well, now nobody can accuse me of being the beast.” He also placed the sign of on the left, rather than the right arm.

Audience: I heard something about the credit card that is related to this, the credit card has a number on it and I hold it in my hand when I swipe it.

JJ: Well you do not hold it in your forehead and it says the right hand or the forehead. The orthodox interpretation is if someone has a hand missing then they will put the computer chip in the forehead. Well that does not make a lot of sense. Imagine going through a scanner using your forehead! It would easier to put it on the foot or the other hand or his elbow or whatever stump he has left but if you put it on the forehead it would be kind of silly really. Plus it would painful to put a computer chip right into your forehead! It is possible that a tyrant could rise up and put some number on us all but what was interesting about Hitler is that he obviously read the scriptures and decided that he did not want to be portrayed as the beast.

Then we have his Nazi symbol, the Swastika – which arm did he put that on?

Audience: The Left

JJ: Left; he thought he was escaping the mark of the beast by having everybody put the Nazi symbol on the left arm and I believe he did that because he did not want to be associated with the beast but unfortunately for him he still screwed up because the Nazi symbol on the left arm symbolized the left hand path. So unknowingly in trying to avoid looking like the beast in history he really turned into the beast because the Nazi symbol on the left arm was symbolizing the left hand path. So he did not get out of the symbolism after all.

Audience: Didn’t the swastika spin to the left instead of the right.

JJ: It does point right or clockwise and there are two types of swastikas, one used by the Brotherhood of Light that goes counter clockwise and means the path of greatest resistance and the Nazis which used the path of least resistance, which is the path of materialism and that is what their swastika stood for. Now unfortunately the Brotherhood of Light cannot use the swastika anymore because Hitler just ruined it. So if we reverse the direction and use the swastika everybody would think we some kind of Nazis. Chuckling. They would not recognize that it is moving in a different direction so the swastika is pretty much out of commission for probably thousands of years.

The true mark on the right hand symbolizes labor. The forehead symbolizes thought. People already have the mark on their right hand and their forehead and in the Book of First John written 2000 years ago it says, “The anti-Christ is even now already in the world.” The beast was already there clear back in the days of John The Revelator and it has been there even before him. In other words, there have always been people who are the authorities that have ruled the world.

The seven kingdoms of the world have had the mark placed the mark in the right hand or the forehead of their subjects. They had to think the way they were told to think and labor for the authority they were told to work for or they would suffer and die at their hands..

I was just reading about back in the days of Martin Luther, (1483-1546 initiated Protestant Reformation, “The 95 Theses began in 1517) Martin Luther and his followers were persecuted. People that subscribed to his thinking were burned at the stake just for saying that they liked Martin Luther.  They roasted them, not quickly but very slow. They slow roasted them and then lifted them up off the coals before they died and let them recuperate a little bit and then lowered them back into the burning fire and roast them some more. That is how cruel they were.

They disemboweled others along with burning people at the stake just for voicing an opinion. It has been this way for thousands of years. We do not realize how lucky we are to be able to sit here in this room and talk. If we were to be transported back a couple hundred years ago we would all be burned at the stake, just for having this meeting. Now if we go where the beast has full power like North Korea, you have to think the way you are told to think and if you do not you go into re-education camp. You have to work the way you are told to work or you will suffer and be killed at the hands of the beastly authority in charge.

McCall Gathering, 2007, Part 15

This entry is part 15 of 54 in the series McCall Gathering 2007

The Unveiling, Part 10

Fire from Heaven

The other thing that I will go into briefly is the beast which has a lot of interesting symbolism,

And I stood upon the sand of the sea and I saw a beast rise up out of the sea have seven heads and ten horns and upon his head ten crowns and upon his heads, the name of blasphemy.

Why is he called the beast? He is called the beast because like attracts like and he controls people like they are beasts and what does a person that herds cattle do? He herds them and the beast has to go in the direction that he is told to go and if he does not then he gets whipped or something similar and is forced in some way to go the direction of the person that herds him. The beast in the Book Of Revelation is a great beast herder and what he tries to do is reduce all humanity who is not supposed to be beasts into beasts of burden where they do exactly what they are told to do.

He has seven heads symbolizing seven great kingdoms since the last great Adam. We are in the seventh head right now. And ten horns symbolizing ten divisions of humanity, there are ten religious divisions and ten political divisions in the world.

“And upon his heads crowns.” A crown symbolizes a kingdom and a king has life and death power over his subjects and can command them and they have to obey. “And upon his heads the names of blasphemy…” The names of blasphemy are all the names of those who represent the beast. In the religions it is, your holiness, your righteousness, reverend, father all these names are blasphemy which on the heads of religious rulers. All the religious leaders have these names, rabbi, father, reverend, and holy priest, your holiness and all these names are names of blasphemy.

In the political world we have the names of blasphemy also – your Excellency, your highness, your most high one or whatever, all kinds of names that people call the king or leader, these are also the names of blasphemy that are on the beast. When George Washington became president he insisted he just be called Mr. President because that is what he was and he did not allow any to call him a name that was recognized by the beast. He did not allow a name of blasphemy to be applied to him and he gets a lot of credit for that because he was probably the first man in history to refuse the power that the people wanted to bestow upon him.

And the beast which I saw was likened to a leopard, and his feet were the feet of a bear and his mouth were like the mouth of a lion and the dragon gave him his power, his seat and his great authority.

The beast is like a leopard because it is quick to destroy any enemy, anybody that threatens him. His feet were like the feet of a bear because he puts pressure and trods under his feet anyone that gets in his way. His mouth is like the mouth of a lion – and when a lion roars it puts the fear of God in everybody and when an agent of the beast says off with his head, he has that power to take off the guy’s head.

And the dragon, which represents illusion, gave him his power, his seat and his great authority and he did all his works through illusion. “And I saw one of heads as it were wounded to death and the deadly wound was healed and the entire world wondered after the beast.” Here in the physical realm we have the seventh head and it was wounded to death. When did his happen?

Audience: When the second beast came, right?

JJ: Not exactly, it was wounded to death by the Constitution of the United States, which brought freedom, and George Washington refused to accept a name of blasphemy and they established a free country that was free from the power of the beast and it wounded the seventh head as if it were to death. It looked like the seventh head was now going to die because freedom was going to spread all throughout the world but, “The deadly wound was healed” how was the deadly wound healed?

Audience: Bureaucracy

JJ: Bureaucracy. Everything was supposed to be done by elected leaders but what happened is we began to appoint all kinds of authorities. Everyone in the IRS is appointed. Nobody in that organization is elected, and this is the most scary and dangerous organization that we have. All kinds of people with authority over us are now appointed and not elected and there is no way to get them out of office. If we want to get rid of these people that have all this power over us we are out of luck. There is almost no way that we can do it and this heals the deadly wound. The deadly wound is being healed as more and more authority is over individual lives in this country.

People do not realize how far removed we are from the way our country was set up. The Boston tea party was revolt over a few pennies of tax. Now, if we add all taxes, most of us pay over 50% of our income to tax and this a lot more taxing than the early colonist were complaining about that started the revolutionary war. And they complained no taxation without representation. Well we have a lot more taxation without representation than they ever dreamed of and with that power the deadly wound was healed and the power over the lives of individuals is being brought back to us again.

All kinds of laws are unnecessary. Jessie Ventura suggested we spend two seasons making laws and one season undoing all the unnecessary laws, but no one listen. So the deadly wound was healed and there was given him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemy and power was given him to continue how long?

Forty and two months or again three and half seasons, three and a half seasons the beast has power to continue and he opened his mouth to blasphemy against God and His name and them that dwell in heaven. So the power of the beast blasphemies God by presenting an image of God that is not real and having us worship an outer image of God rather than the God within.

And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

The word “worship” comes from a Greek word that means, “kiss ass.” Basically this is what it means, or, more specifically,  suck up to. So in other words, everybody is going to suck up to some authority that is going to have power to completely control their lives and tell them what to do.

“And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth and he had two horns like lamb and spoke as a dragon.” The beast  had two horns like a lamb. The two horns like a lamb are symbolic of Christ, the lamb of God. A horn is symbolic of a power or a kingdom. And the two horns like a lamb stand for, the second beast which was America and it had two horns that was sanctioned by the hierarchy or by the Christ. The first was the establishment of a number of religious orders bringing greater light that were created in the United States. Some of these were Mormonism, Madam Blavatsky, Alice A. Bailey, the science of the mind and Unity churches. Many of these works that brought greater enlightenment to the world originated right here in the United States and that was one of the horns. The second horn was the political system, the Constitution and the free government that was started here. So this country had two horns representing the Christ but it spoke the words of the dragon. The reason it spoke the words of the dragon was the deadly wound was healed. Instead of being ruled by the constitution we are ruled by bureaucrats that speak words of authority that tell us what to do and what to think.

He exercised all of the power of the first beast before him and causes the earth and them which dwell in it to worship the first beast whose deadly wound was healed and he doth great wonders that he maketh fire to come down out of heaven and the sight of man.

Now when did the United States bring fire out of heaven in the site of man?

Audience: The creation of the atom bomb.

JJ: Right, the word “heaven” comes from the Greek word “Uranos” and what other word comes from this Greek word?

Audience: Uranium

JJ: Uranium, so in other words, the United States brought fire out of uranium in the site of man for everybody to see. So let us translate heaven as uranium and read it again, “He doth great wonders” and who has done more wonders than the United States, we even invented the Internet, right? “He doth great wonders, he maketh fire to come out of URANIUM on the earth in the sight of men. Doesn’t that exactly describe what we did at the end of World War II? We brought fire out of uranium in the sight of men. “And he decieveth him dwell upon the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the site of the beast. Saying to them that dwell upon the earth that they should make an image to the beast that had the wound by the sword and did live, and he had power to give life to the image of the beast that the image of the beast should both speak cause as many that would not worship the image of the beast that they should be killed.

Now one of the negative things that the United States has done is to support dictatorships controlled by the beast. Keep in mind that it has the righteous side like the Lamb of God but also a negative side. Speech with the authority of the dragon is part of the negative side.

So when did it make an image to the beast and give it power? In other words, the beast had all this power over life and death and the United States has done something to give life to an image of the beast. Now think back to the days of the Soviet Empire, what kept them alive? Whenever they had financial problems we would send them money and food. We sustained that image of the beast and who ever would not worship that image of the beast was killed or put in prison and many capitalistic investors actually invested in starting the Bolshevik revolution and financing the overthrow of the Czar and the creation of communism. A lot of that was financed by western bankers.

Now let’s look another one, North Korea. What do we do – we send them food. Does the food go to the poor people? No it goes to the military and the military tells the people, do what we say or you will be killed. And who is their biggest trading partner now? China another totalitarian dictatorship. If you do not play ball there in China then your life is in danger. Another is Cuba and even though we have embargo’s in place it is still financed by all kinds of people who send their money to their friends there and it keeps it alive giving them the power of the beast and life and death power over the people that if they do not play ball then they will be imprisoned or killed quietly. In this way the United States is sustaining the image of the beast throughout the world and if we would just quit helping the beast throughout the world then the beasts would all die, but we are sustaining them in power.

If we had not started this trade agreement in China and concentrated on India and Mexico instead we would not have the big worry that we have now about the large military build up in China.

So we have given life to the image of the beast throughout the world. We acknowledge the enemies of freedom and many of them are our enemies but we still send them food to keep them alive and to sustain them. It is a very strange situation.

McCall Gathering, 2007, Part 6

This entry is part 6 of 54 in the series McCall Gathering 2007

The Unveiling, Part 1

JJ: We are going to talk about my new book called “The Unveiling” and this is the first copy and as you can tell we put a lot of work and expense into the cover. (Shows cover with title written by a Sharpie)

Audience: I like the font! (Laughter)

JJ: It has a little bit more reading than the Immortal 1 & 2 put together and this book “The Unveiling” is about the Book of Revelations. The Book of Revelations starts off with an interesting verse, “The revelation of Jesus Christ which God gave unto Him to show unto His servants things which must shortly come to pass and he sent and signified it by His angel unto his servant John.”

There are several interesting things in this statement and first of all it calls it the revelation of Jesus Christ. The word “revelation” comes from Apokalypsis which is interpreted a number of different ways but it derives from another Greek word, Apokalypto which means to take the cover off of something, to unveil it. A handful of translators have come up with the idea that it really should be translated as “the unveiling.” From my study of the word that is actually the closest to the translation into English from the Greek Apokalypsis. What we are told in the very first verse, the unveiling of Jesus Christ to show unto his servants things, which must shortly come to pass. Must shortly come to pass, when was this written?

Audience: 2000 years ago.

JJ: 2000 years ago, that would be like me saying, I am going to write this prophecy about things that will shortly come to pass and here it is 2007 and we are clear up to 4000 and nothing has happened yet. Do you think the people in the year 4000 are going to get an accurate interpretation of a prophecy we make in 2007?

Audience Sharón: If you look at the time cycles for each 2,160 years and then you go through each time cycle that change within each sign, shortly does not necessarily mean tomorrow, a hundred or two hundred years shortly means after about 2,160 years.

JJ: Sharón, I am disappointed in you to hear a fundamentalist interpretation coming out of your mouth. (Laughter) Because she is about as far away from a fundamentalist as there is. But if you say this to fundamentalist like a Christian, they will say well a day with God is like a thousand years and that is kind of short. But yes by the normal way of looking at this if this is a prophecy of events and it is inspired then we have to come with something to explain what it is that “this will shortly come to pass.” Also at the end of the book Jesus is speaking and He says, “Behold I come quickly.” I am going to come quickly on this white horse that is going to come down out of the sky; I come quickly.

Well it is 2000 years I guess if a day to God is a thousand years and if age if the universe is billions of years old than a couple thousand years is not that much. But by normal standards 2000 years is not really quick.

Suppose some prophet says California is going to sink into the sea. Somebody said that in 1978 and a lot people moved to Idaho around that time, remember the song that said, “Tie up your boat in Idaho?” It was a popular song because this physic had made a prediction that California was going to sink into the sea and the shoreline was going to be up here in Idaho.

After about 5 years passed, California did not sink and then people said it has been too long now so it must have been a false prophecy. And it only took about 3-5 years before everybody forgot about the prediction but could you imagine California sinking into the sea in the year 4000 and they said, ah, it shortly came to pass and it didn’t take too long, it only took 2000 years!

So is it possible there is a different meaning for “shortly” here, what does it mean, that things will shortly come to pass? First of all what are some of the things that are supposed happen in here?

We are told there is going to a great fiery star descend from the skies land in the oceans and kill 1/3 of the life in the oceans. Has that happened yet? No I have not seen that happen yet. There is going to be an army of 2 hundred million men descend on Jerusalem and have the battle of Armageddon there. That has not happened. Two witnesses are supposed go prophesy in Jerusalem and a beastly character is going to rise up like Hitler and he will come against them and kill them and their dead bodies will lay in the streets for three and half days. After the three and half days they will rise up and there will be a great earthquake and everyone will be terrified and every people nation and tongue shall see these two witnesses rise up and great fear will fall upon those who have beheld them. That has not happened. It would certainly make the news if two guys got killed and lay in the streets for three days and everybody was happy and sent gifts to each other because their dead bodies were laying in the street because it says that two witnesses plagued the people of the earth and they were so happy to see them dead.

When Christians read this they say this has got to happen in our time because it says all the people of the nations were able to see their dead bodies laying in the streets and that could not happen in the days of John but with TV and the internet we could see this today. But then that presents a bit of a problem. We have this clearly detailed prophecy. So if some Hitler type killed these two and they were laying in the streets and everybody was celebrating and sending gifts to each other that these guys were finally out of the way and dead and they did not even suffer their dead bodies to be buried it said because they were televising them for all the world for all to see and everyone was rejoicing that they were dead wouldn’t somebody say, “hey this sounds like it could be the witnesses in revelation and that means they are going to rise up after three and half days.” People would start to wait and see boy that would convert everybody when they rose from the dead, would it not?

And how about this beast? It is supposed to be a terrible beast and antichrist rise up and he is going to put like a computer chip in everyone’s hand, some type of mark in everyone’s right hand or their forehead and they will have to do exactly what this dictator says and this dictator is going to be so bad he is going to make Hitler look like Cinderella. This guy is going to be a real bad guy, and he is going to control the whole world and we are all going to get his mark and we all are going to do what he says and he is even going to be so bad he is going to challenge Jesus when he sees him come down on that white horse.

He is not going to put up much of a fight because Jesus is going to zap him and he is going to evaporate along with all the armies and Jesus is going to call the fouls of the air to come and feast on the flesh of all the captains and the horses. As a matter of fact it says they, 200 million men, will all be on horses. That is kind of weird is it not? Well maybe he was talking about tanks and stuff but John just called them horses and all this is supposed to shortly come to pass.

How do we explain that word shortly getting in there? The Christian world looks at this and says that word shortly cannot interfere with out interpretation so there is lots of ways to interpret shortly. In other words, when these events start to happen it is all going to happen in a short time is one way to look at it or a day with God is like a thousand years and what’s a couple thousand years that is short in God’s mind and Jesus says I come quickly, and that could be that when he comes, he is just going to come really fast.

So there are ways around this but let’s look at it just the way it reads, these things will shortly come to pass. Actually it means exactly what it says, what things and who, who is the book of revelations written to? I read it to you and does anybody remember?

Audience Joshua: The Disciples.

JJ: Joshua you did great! It was written to the servants of God. And whom will it come shortly to pass for?

Audience: The servants of God.

JJ: Everything in here is going to come shortly to pass to the disciples. Not to everybody else but to the disciples. Then it says something interesting here, it says, “Blessed is he that reads and hears the words of this prophecy, and keeps those things which are written therein, for the time is at hand.” What time is at hand? The time for everything in this book to come to pass shortly! In other words, the time, is at hand, but for whom? The disciples who read and keep within their heart and their minds the words of this prophesy. They are the ones who will be blessed.

Well that is really weird because when you read it in the normal sense there is no blessing in the book. I mean a mountain coming out of heaven killing all the fish, fires coming down, hail storms, all kinds of destruction and at one point one third of the men on the earth are killed with this great army, and the beast rising up. Where is the stuff that blesses everybody? There is nothing in there to bless anybody. All it is, is stuff that it scares the daylights out of you – if you believe it. You read the whole thing and you think this is probably going to happen soon because it has been 2000 years and it cannot go on much longer before soon is not soon anymore.

Audience: We are in the latter days.

JJ: It seems so. Let’s pick a random verse from the book of revelation and see how it applies. (JJ Opens to a random selection and reads:)

All they that dwell upon the earth shall worship him the beast whose names are not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world. This beast exercised all the power of the first beast before him and causes the earth and them which dwell in to worship the beast whose deadly wound is healed and he does great wonders and then it says he causes all rich and poor to receive his mark on the right hand or forehead and if they don’t receive it the they will be killed.

Is that anything to be happy about? No, let’s just pick something else at random here.

“And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.

“And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.

“And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:

“For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?” Rev 6:12-17

Would I be able to stand if every mountain and island are moving out of their place? Then there will be a great earthquake, the stars will shake and move the moon will turn blood and the sun will not give it’s light! What is there to look forward to? How can I be blessed by reading this book? How is that possible?

Let me tell you how it is possible, the book is not about what everybody thinks it is about.

The Mayans talked about 25,000 year cycles.

JJ: My feeling about 2012 is that it is a point taking us into the Age of Aquarius. I don’t think there is anything magical with 2012 over 2011.  From what I understand it was the end of their calendar and they saw this as the end of an age rather than the end of the world.  It could be an intense time period.  Let me see.  It is now 2007… we could have some interesting things happen by that time.  I see a larger turning point occurring around 2025-2030, which I see as an intense period of change.

McCall Gathering, 2007, Part 5

This entry is part 5 of 54 in the series McCall Gathering 2007

Bureaucrats

James Wong:
I felt that maybe you were leading up to a call to action just a minute ago and I wanted to continue that thought that the challenge today is that disciples must recognize good verses evil and the see the changes that must take place and work toward those changes. What are some examples of what we should work toward today?

JJ: Let’s talk about one that most of us would agree with. Most of agree that we are taxed too much. At times in the past it cost up to 80% of the money in administration to handle our welfare. In other words, it cost several dollars to give away one dollar. Now that’s just totally ridiculous. No wonder our taxes are so high.

Now when McGovern ran against Nixon he had the idea of bypassing administration costs and suggested just sending everyone a check in the mail. He was just laughed out of existence, but I thought that was the best idea that a Democrat had for a long time. I was really beside myself in deciding to vote for Nixon or McGovern. I thought he had a good idea as far as reducing administrative costs go. But he got laughed at and Nixon won 49 states to one, if I recall correctly, and it was largely because of this one suggestion from McGovern.

It wasn’t a good idea for administering welfare, but it was a good one for escaping overhead. Anything is better than spending three or four dollars to give away one. I think we are a little more efficient now but there is still a lot of waste. Have you heard anything Sharón?

Sharón: No. I was working for a company that trains hospital staff to prescreen people for Medicaid and other government programs and it still takes boo coos in dollars to give away one.

JJ: Yeah, it’s really silly. One of the reasons that McGovern wasn’t supported, even by many fellow Democrats, is that his plan would have taken away many bureaucrats’ jobs, but I thought the idea was better than anything Nixon had for a welfare solution.

That’s one thing that everyone can agree on – that we have this tremendous bureaucracy, but then when anyone tries to change or trim it, the bureaucracy raises its head for they may lose their jobs or have a diminishment in pay or authority. They may not be able to hire as many and increase their authority. There’s lots of things at play.

What happens is there is tremendous force applied to anyone who wants to change anything and anyone who wants to make things more efficient is made to look like the bad guy. The bureaucracy and the media comes down hard on anyone who wants to make any change for the better.

There is so much positive change that could be made in the way money is spent that could lower our taxes and we would all agree on the surface that this is good; but when someone actually tries to do it, he is portrayed as the bad guy.

Social Security is another good example. If people are allowed to invest their own money in the stock market or gold and if it goes up over a period of years we could have a larger retirement than the present system. But anyone who wants to give people the choice of having control over their own money is again called the bad guy.

Those who promote the flat tax or talk of doing away with the IRS are often attacked. Representative George Hansen from Idaho wrote a book on changing the IRS and pointed out a lot of its flaws. It wasn’t long after he circulated this book that the bureaucrats came after him and trumped up charges against the poor guy and put him in jail. They got him for writing some checks before the money was in the bank even though the money was in place when the check was cleared. Almost everyone has done that one time or another. They call that check kiting and they put him in jail for about four years over that.

They not only did that but they tortured him. They tried to poison him several times. They wouldn’t give him shoes that fit. When he came out he had no toenails on his feet because of the small shoes he had to wear. He had scabs all over his body and his teeth were falling out. They tried to kill him several times as the Beast wanted that guy dead. He’s out of jail now but he’s near death and this was probably why they let him go. He would like to do something again to fight the system, but he doesn’t have the strength.

If you look up George Hansen on the Internet you can read his story. (Note: Go to: http://www.constitution.org/ghansen/conghansen.htm
Also: http://www.rumormillnews.com/cgi-bin/archive.cgi?read=22130)

The Beast came after George and portrayed him as evil even though he had a heart of gold.

The interesting thing about the Aquarian Age we are entering is there are always forces trying to take us backwards, but fortunately there is a law called the Dominating Good. In every comic book you learn that good is supposed to dominate over evil and that’s really a true principle. That which is good is a little stronger than that which pulls us backward into the old less efficient way of doing things.

Any why is good stronger? It is because the intelligence of humanity recognizes that which is good is better than that which is not good. For instance humanity, as a whole, recognizes that the free countries have a better system than the Taliban. Average humanity can see this. No slavery today is better than slavery. We can see that certain portions of progress are better than the old way of doing things.

That is why good dominates. Good dominates because it is supported by intelligence and, even though we have our illusions, some intelligence comes to the surface. When illusion and selfishness are stripped away we will always choose that which is good.

We will progress into the Aquarian Age, and it will be an age where there will be an increase in brotherhood, an increase in group consciousness, an increase in awareness, an increase in sensitivity, an increase in love and especially service.

As we said the key word for the Aquarian Age is service. We will seek to render service and will receive the appropriate recompense for that service. This will not be a service where we just serve and sacrifice, but it will be intelligent sacrifice, intelligent service with a recognition that there is such a thing as karma, that we are going to get back that which we have given. We will give intelligently and serve intelligently.

Now the interesting thing about the coming Age of Aquarius is the cycles involved. Each age lasts about 2160 years so we haven’t had an Age of Aquarius for about 25,000 years.

But there are larger cycles. Each one of the 25,000 year cycles is influenced by one of the signs. Now we are entering the first Age of Aquarius in 25,000 years but this coming age is also the beginning of a greater cycle of Aquarius. In other words, this next 25,000 years we will be in a greater cycle of Aquarius that only happens once every 300,000 years.

Audience: Does this have anything to do with 2012?

JJ No, it doesn’t have anything to do with that date. So the next 2160 years will be an Age of Aquarius with a greater age which is a rare occurrence. So because we have Aquarius within Aquarius this makes the energies much stronger than the last Aquarian Age. It will be a quintessential Aquarian Age.

The coming Aquarian energies are so strong that if we use them correctly we can create positive change as has not happened since the beginning of history, or even prehistory. We haven’t had an age like this since Atlantis.

Any Questions?

Audience: The Mayas talked about 25,000 year cycles.

JJ: My feeling about 2012 is that it is a point taking us into the Age of Aquarius. I don’t think there is anything magical with 2012 over 2011. From what I understand it was the end of their calendar and they saw this as the end of an age rather than the end of the world. It could be an intense time period. Let me see. It is now 2007… we could have some interesting things happen by that time. I see a larger turning point occurring around 2025-2030, which I see as an intense period of change.

666

Dec 15, 1998

666

If I were a representative of the Beast I would not be teaching you here, but would set myself up as the ultimate authority and would discourage your learning and thought while at the same time proclaim I am for free thought, learning and an open mind.

I see from your posts today that some of you have been subject to beastly leaders in the past. The sign of such a group is this. When you are in the group you just get a sense that you need to only give the answers that the leader wants to hear. If you give otherwise you will be “frowned” upon.

In the old days you were imprisoned or killed for questioning. Fortunately the Constitution that wounded the Beast plus the slow progress we have made in the rule of law gives us some protection in this age.

Even though standard numerology is not the key we are looking for I was looking forward to someone going into it. It definitely gives an additional depth and view of the various levels of interpretation available.

Glad to hear that some of you are looking into Strong’s Concordance. If you intelligently use this you can become a better translator than the scholars. Why? Because people on this forum have more common sense than most scholars.

Regular bookstores would have to special order this but almost all Christian bookstores have it. If you visit one they may tell you that Young’s or another one is just as good, but they are not. Strong’s has been the standard for many years. You can just imagine the work it took to create with no computer.

Then too you can order it from Amazon.

I have a computer program that’s supposed to have Strong’s on it, but they have edited it so much of the good stuff is taken out.

Another tool you may want if you desire to do research in the original language is Concordant New Testament. They also have about half of the Old Testament translated. Unlike regular Bibles, that are translated for easy reading, this version is painstakingly literally translated without regard to how it reads. Consequently, there is very little bias in it.

I’m surprised the publishers have not turned into New Agers.

You can order HERE

The text of the Concordant New Testament can be found here:

http://concordant.org/version/literal-new-testament-online/

It is an interesting fact that a goal of the Brotherhood, in addition to promoting that which is good, is to take “evil” to a higher level. In the old days it was only mildly “evil” to kill a slave. Now here in Idaho if you kill as Jack Rabbit you are more “evil” than was the guy who killed his slave in the past. In other words, evil has been taken to a higher level.

In the free world (which is now the totality of the second beast) the evil beast has been taken to a higher level. When we offend the Beast now we just lose our job or get thrown out of something whereas in the image of the Beast (the non free world) they are still literally killed.

Dave asks: Are we even in this group subject to the Beast? Probably to some extent we all are. The reason we have spent so much time on the Beast is to make us aware of that which holds us back from the full truth. “Ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.”

I take some risk in teaching you the truth about the Beast. Some may go the other extreme and feel they need to challenge me on everything.

One who has freed himself from the authority of the Beast however will test all teachers including myself with the God within, but once a teacher’s words have passed that test a challenging attitude becomes unnecessary. Nevertheless, never get lazy – always check all things through the soul and then question when necessary.

One of the problems with students is that when they go out of alignment with the soul they often think their teacher has gone astray while they believe they have now passed beyond their teacher. Jesus had this problem with the disciples of old to some extent and had to set them straight several times by reminding them to look within to discover the truth anew. All but Judas were able to do this. He refused to look within and his ego made him soar in his mind even higher than his Lord.

Now what could 666 possibly have to do with being under the authority of the Beast? You must also read the scripture very carefully. Notice in verse 17 that those who have the mark bear “the number of his name?”

Now the Christian world is waiting for some great dictator to arise with the number 666 tattooed on his head or something like that, but here we are told that the billions among the masses bear the number themselves? How could they do that?

Hint: What chakra does the Beast use to maintain his control?

Hint

The beast does not work through the Heart Center for he cannot comprehend spiritual love.

Solar Hint

Glenys and Kyle were on the right track by thinking Solar Plexus.

What could this have to do with the number 6 or 666?

Hint: The age of Pisces is also involved.

The Milgram Experiment

Dec 14, 1998

The Milgram Experiment

A while back Dateline had a special on the power of Authority.

They started the show by showing an old clip from Candid Camera. In this clip the victim of the show entered an elevator with about six other people in it. The funny thing was that the other six (who worked with Candid Camera) were told to face different directions at different times.

Now normally when you are in an elevator, you face the door; but this group all faced the inside panel with their backs toward the door. Even though this was very odd the victim did not want to be different so he turned with his back toward the door. Then they showed several clips of the people in the elevator and every time the group turned, the victim turned with them.

It seemed kind of funny and I’m sure the Candid Camera audience got a good laugh out of it, but the reality behind this is the scariest human trait we possess. That is, most of mankind will follow the leader or group even if it makes no sense or if it goes against every moral teaching they have ever been taught.

The second part of the feature had an experiment done with college students. Again they had an unsuspecting victim participating with a group of about a half dozen that knew what was going on. The group was shown a set of four lines and of the four there were two of equal length. They were then asked to pick the two lines that were equal. They showed the lines on TV and it was obvious which two were the correct match.

The next thing they did was to have the planted students all give the same wrong match. Then when it became the victim’s turn you could tell he began to doubt what his eyes and reasoning were telling him. Some of the victims gave the right answer for a round or two but one by one each victim gave in and started giving the wrong answer as the right answer, even though he knew within himself that it was wrong.

The interesting thing about watching their faces on TV was that they all looked a little depressed when they started knowingly giving the wrong answers as right answers. It was almost like the poor kids were selling their souls.

Finally, they showed the most alarming experiment of all authority which was conducted by Stanley Milgram way back in the sixties.

Milgram was curious about how a group of apparently normal people like the Germans could have participated in the Nazi atrocities that were against every moral teaching that they ever believed in. Their excuse was always the same: “I was just following orders.”

Below is a description of the experiment:

The subjects in the experiment were not aware that they were the ones being studied, but thought that they were performing experiments on other subjects to test their compliance through the administering of electric shocks.

When the subjects asked whether increased shocks should be given he/she was verbally encouraged to continue. Sixty-five percent of the subjects obeyed orders to punish the learner to the very end of the 450-volt scale! No subject stopped before reaching 300 volts which is deadly!

At times, the worried subjects questioned the experimenter, asking who was responsible for any harmful effects resulting from shocking the learner at such a high level. Upon receiving the answer that the experimenter assumed full responsibility, subjects seemed to accept the response and continue shocking, even though some were obviously extremely uncomfortable in doing so.

What was interesting about watching this on Dateline was that when the subject hit the high voltage the pretended victim screamed like crazy and even said he had a bad heart and that the experiment was killing him.

The subject then turned to the authority as if asking what to do and the authority told him to continue. If the subject seemed to doubt the authority told him that he would take responsibility.

Then the subject continued to shock the supposed victim past 300 volts until he went silent. This indicated the victim was either unconscious or dead. Still the subject did not cease. He continued to increase the voltage clear up to 450 which would mean that if the victim was not dead yet this would surely kill him.

The interesting thing is that if this was a real happening, the subject would not only have killed another human being which was against every teaching that he believed in, but he would have also been brought up on murder charges. It is scary that even this possibility did not deter the subject from following authority.

The funny thing about these experiments is that the scientists predicted that only one out of a thousand would follow an authority to shock up to 450 volts, but 65% went that far and 100% of the subjects went up to 300 volts, which is still enough to kill.

Thus we have a great example of the true mark of the Beast on the right hand – the willingness to follow blind authority no matter what the consequences.

The interesting thing is that very few people know themselves well enough to know whether or not they would administer the 300 or more volts to an innocent brother. Most would think that they would never do such a thing, but are they right? Remember, 100% of those in the experiment yielded to the authority.

Even more sinister is the mark in the forehead. Remember the philosophy of Big Brother in the novel 1984? It was not enough that people did as they were told. In addition to this it was demanded that they also love Big Brother and totally embrace everything he stood for in their belief system. If someone was caught having independent thought he was not executed immediately. First he had to be brainwashed into loving Big Brother and when the victim demonstrated that he was willing to accept an obvious falsehood from Big Brother with Love, then he was shot, but not before.

Now we must remember that over half of the world’s population is under the direct obvious control of some Big Brother type of government. For these inhabitants there is often no way for immediate escape from the mark of the Beast. They have to at least pretend to go along or they will not be able to get work, will not be able to buy or sell and may wind up executed.

It’s a little different in the Free World. We do not have to receive the mark here; instead, we embrace it by our own free will, just as do the subjects in the Milgram experiment. They were free. They could have gotten up any moment and left, but they did not.

Kyle said that perhaps religion administers the mark of the Beast in the free world. Yes, this is true as shown by Jonestown, Heavens Gate and your fanatical neighbor down the street, but this is only part of the mark.

The mark is demonstrated before us right now on TV by the Democrats and Republicans in the impeachment proceedings (written during the Clinton impeachment). Both sides are going along with group thought. I think out of the 435 Representatives only one Republican and no Democrats defied their party thoughtform and authoritative leaders on the last Impeachment vote.

One of about 435 going against accepted authorities. That’s how powerful the Beast is! It doesn’t matter to the Beast if you are Republican or Democrat, or even which is closer to the truth. What matters is control.

The question we need to ask ourselves is: “Would I be strong enough to be one out of the 435?”

Would we have been strong enough as an early Christian to refuse to acknowledge Caesar as God and allow ourselves to be fed to lions?

Putting religion aside you have to admire these followers of Christ who gave their lives to defy the Beast. Their lives were not in vain, for they paved the way to the wounding of the Beast. Now finally we are in a point in time and space where the whole beast will be destroyed, but before we can destroy such an enemy we must know and understand what it is and how it functions.

The beast, as a whole, is not a country or anything physical, but is blind authority and is demonstrated by the “blind following the blind.”

The beast is destroyed by opening the eyes of the blind, and this we shall do with power and great glory, but first we must open our own eyes to the one authority – the Spirit of God within us.

Next we shall attack the greatest, most discussed mystery of the whole Bible -the number of the Beast. Everything you have learned so far has just been preparation to understand this mystery.

And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the Beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the Beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. Rev 13:17 -18

So what is the meaning of the 666?
